What are your favorites and how do you like incorporating them in to drinks/food? Looking for some recommendations. I used to use strawberry whey powder that you can just buy from Walmart - but really looking for different ideas! :}

Heey, I usually get the chocolate flavoured one. They're lush! It says you can have it with water, but I haven't tried that combination yet. I always have it with warm semi-skimmed milk :)!

Gosh! I never thought to use coffee with a protein drink! That sounds absolutely fantastic! I might have to try it once I purchase a protein mix. Thanks for the recipes and websites! They both sound so great!

I use the Vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder. Being that I can't have whey, its great because it's vegan, has no additives, and has lots of good stuff in it (like greens and such).

I put it in water/ almond milk/ juice, add spirulina, chlorella, blue-green algae, greens powder, vitamin C powder, ocassionally some BCAAs, and glutamine :)

I absolutely love almond milk. What's the shelf life like for this product? I'm always wary with certain vegan foods because the shelf life can be slim and I'd be the only one using/eating. It sounds scrumptious though! Thanks for the tip!

The shelf life is 1-2 years approximately, depending on how fresh the bag is when you buy it. It comes in natural, vanilla, and chocolate. If you want any other recommendations, let me know :)

Wow! So it has a pretty decent life span then. I will definitely look in to it! I'd love to try it in chocolate! Thank you so much.

No problem! The chocolate one is fairly good, actually tastes like chocolate, where as I find some powders taste a little off. Just as a side note, it has 47 servings per bag, and its around $50-60 (in Canada) depending on where you get it :)

I love herbalife formula 1 cookies and cream mix with a scoop of personalized protein powder. Tastes great and keeps the hunger off for a very long time

Oh, that sounds delicious! Especially as a shake.

If all you have is water to mix with... then Whole Gains mango flavor is AWESOME tasting and it has fiber in it too.
Other than that I use BSN Syntha-6 vanilla and always blend it with juice and/or water, whatever frozen and fresh fruit sounds good at the time... sometimes I throw in some veggies like spinach or kale, broccoli, carrots etc. The Syntha-6 blends up thick without getting foamy if you blend it for awhile and that helps me to feel full.

Cookies and cream flavor! I mix it either with low fat milk or soy milk. It's nice! It's like eating Hershey cookies and cream chocolate! Lol!

Hi Madison,i usually buy unflavoured whey powder so you can add any flavour you like.It can make a great breakfast when mixed with oats instead of milk.
