I bought this to add to my workout routine. I'm trying to build muscle now and I drink this after my weight lifting workouts. I looked at the ingredients and price on many products and decided on this brand--I got the natural chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavors. Both of them taste great. They seem to have the best ingredients if your looking for minimal artificial ingredients. This does not bother my irritable bowel syndrome--and believe me---most products cause lots of gas and bloating. This does not. I highly recommend this product. One point--I found out the Vitamin Shoppe sells this for about $2 cheaper and you can just walk right in and buy it and not wait for shipping.

Both my wife and I had decided fairly recently to start using protein powder after our workouts. We started with some unnamed protein powder, but my wife started getting migraine headaches. After looking at the ingredients, we decided it was possible that they were due to the artificial sweeteners. I looked around online, and had a heck of a time trying to find a whey protein which did not use artificial sweeteners. Which is where this protein came in.

We have now tried all 3 flavors of Natural, the Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry. My wife's headaches have gone away, which is always a good thing.

My wife and I both disliked the Vanilla. There was something about the flavor we didn't like. There are lots of good descriptive words for sight (bright, dim, yellow, flashing, etc), but nothing much for taste. Too bad. Anyway, we didn't like it.

I am a fan of the Strawberry. I sometimes drink it with water (it's just fine), but with soy milk (I'm a recent soy milk convert) it tastes very close to strawberry milk. I don't mind gulping protein powder just to get it over with, but the strawberry with soy milk was basically at the point that I would enjoy the drink. Excellent!

My wife is a fan of the chocolate. She said it's very similar to normal chocolate powder, which is a good thing, since I've had chocolate protein powders in the past which did not taste like normal chocolate :)

Texture wise, they mix pretty good. We have screw top bottles we use to mix the protein, we pour in the liquid, give it a few seconds of shaking, and then can drink. Usually I wait for the foamy liquid to settle, I don't like drinking foam.

One day I mixed one scoop of the strawberry flavor in some milk and shook it up inside my blender bottle. I looked over and seen my VinaCafe 3-1 instant coffee packets, and for some odd reason I decided that putting a pack of it into the bottle might be a good idea. Well it definately was. After shaking it up, it actually tasted like cold coffee, something I wouldn't mind drinking daily even as a treat, the protein+milk give it a nice creamy consistency. I wasn't able to taste the strawberry flavor after adding the packet of instant coffee, but I think it would possibly taste good if it was mixed with any of the other protein flavors.

-Blender bottle
-8-10oz of milk
-Protein powder (1 scoop)
-1 packet Vinacafe 3-1 instant coffee

Pour 8-10oz of milk into blender bottle (the kind with a whisk ball)

Put 1 scoop of protein powder into blender bottle

Next pour in 1 packet of Vinacafe 3-1 instant coffee powder

Shake until all of the dry contents are disolved inside of the milk.

Using a blender for this would probably work too, but I haven't tried it.

This protein is great. It mixes well and has a good taste. Though to be honest, when I first tried it, it had an odd bitterness to it. My taste buds were used to the typical, overly-sweetened protein with artificial flavors in it. So this protein seemed sub-standard in taste at first. But after literally 2 servings I not only got used to the taste but really appreciated it. I was in a fitness contest and was restricting my intake of sweets down to...none. So drinking a glass of this protein became a real treat. Honestly I prefer this type of protein over the ones sweetened with Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose or Aspartame. It may not taste as heavenly but I'd rather have less chemicals going into my body. Fun dessert tip: Smash a banana with a fork until it's like pudding, then stir in this protein, a bit of peanut butter & you have a sweet, post-workout protein dessert. Now that my contest is done I can also crumble some graham cracker in there like a pie crust.

This product seems ok so far. I'm by no means an expert on health supplements, but I took the advice of someone who seems to know a lot about bodybuilding who suggested this product. If you're interested in this product, and health and fitness generally, check this guy out, scooby1961 is his YouTube account name. He has a website and many videos full of helpful nutrition and exercise information. No, I'm not in any way related nor do I know him personally, I'm just a member of his audience. He recommended this whey protein as it is 100% natural, something he points out is preferrable. I enjoy the taste and flavor, I went with vanilla because I don't just drink this with milk or water, I put it with other ingredients in the blender and make shakes or smoothies, whatever you might call them. I'll do 1 cup fat free milk, 1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt, two teaspoons artificial sweetner, about 1 cup ice, 140 grams (recommended serving size) of frozen fruit that I defrost in the microwave about 1 minute to blend well, and finally 1 scoop of this protein powder. This makes 4-5 cups and between 355 and 385 calories, no fat. I have been using this as my first meal of the day for about 5 weeks now, so far so good. I realize this is probably more info than anyone reading this might have been after, but I thought I'd include for the heck of it, maybe it's helpful for someone out there. Take care.

Jonathan
