Does anybody know of one that tastes good with water? Or juice? I feel sluggish and sort of sick after drinking a shake with milk pre-workout so I've stopped doing it.

No pain, no gain. In this case, pain = bad taste.

I have vanilla myself, I just drink it with water. It doesn't even taste that bad. Just like it tastes with milk just.. diluted.

I like protein powder mixed in water. But that said, you're just going to have to try some and see. I find the more fake flavors they have, the nastier the taste - no milk to mask it. So much so most of my protein is plain unflavored stuff I buy in bulk from trueprotein.

Muscle Milk tastes great in water, though. But it's not just protein, so unless you want a meal replacement powder, you're stuck sorting through a variety of proteins to find the one you like.

i drink a Reflex MRP, the strawberry is delicious! I imagine the strawberry flavour protein would be ok. I always mix with water, mixing it with milk bothers my stomach

ON double rich chocolate is good in water....and adding 1/2 cup of frozen berries makes it delicious.

Which protein are you using from them?

Seems I can cut my protein cost in half by using trueprotein. It would take me a while to go through 25 lbs though.....I assume the stuff won't stale/go bad. ?

I use a variety of proteins from a few sources. In my closet right now are:

Brands:
Nutribiotics Vegan Rice Protein (chocolate and vanilla)
ON Gold Standard Casein (chocolate and vanilla)
ON Gold Standard Whey (chocolate)

...and the generics from True Protein:
Milk Protein Isolate (unflavored)
Gemma Pea Protein (unflavored)

In the past I've used the cross-flow microfiltration whey, also unflavored, and chocolate flavored hydrolyzed whey. I dropped those because I find the ON Gold Standard Whey gets me the same results (compared to the CFM) or better (compared to hydrolyzed whey) in terms of how I feel after I drink them post-workout.

I tend to rotate and mix my protein around, and I'm trying the gemma pea protein now because the Nutribiotics rice protein doesn't mix well. So far, so good on the pea protein.

It hasn't gone bad on me. I just stick it in my old Muscle Milk and ON containers, or tupperware or rubbermaid containers. Or I just pour some out and re-zip-tie the big bag it came in until I need to re-fill a smaller container.

OK thanks. I'm currently using ON Gold as well....just looking to save some money.

How is the unflavored flavor of the trueprotein? I usually add a 1/2 cup of berries to my shakes, so I shouldn't really need the flavoring. Thoughts?

It just tastes a little chalky, if that. The whey just colors the water and makes it a bit thicker. The berries will flavor it just fine.

I find EAS Whey chocolate to taste good with water. The price also helps.
