Any advice on how to make protein shakes taste good?
I bought the chocolate and it's chalky (as I remembered shakes are) but... stuck with it now and have to make the best of it. So, I tried a recipe I found online that used vanilla yogurt (used plain with vanilla extract), hazelnut coffee (didn't have but would like to try), chocolate protein, milk (I used plain almond), peanut butter, and ice cubes. Pretty good taste. Also check youtube for how to put into protein bars - that hides the chalky taste for sure, but need oatmeal or something to adhere to - honey and peanut butter, dry fruit, etc - really nice I have to say except for gluten factor.
Ice can be added for volume, I use a pinch of xanthan gum for thickness, frozen bananas for a creamier consistency, sometimes I use So delicous coconut milk instead of almond milk for a creamier shake as well.
I like to put cinnamon, peanut butter, chocolate powder, mint, honey, or oats in mine. Depends on what I am craving at the moment. I buy the plant fusion protein powder. It is delicious! I get the vanilla and put chocolate powder in it if I feel like I need that chocolate fix.
