    I bought 15 lbs of cytosport vanilla protein powder a few months ago without having tried it before because it was going for cheap. Since then, I've used probably 2 lbs because the shit is so disgusting to me.

    Today I decided I needed to find something that would cut the taste so I used 2 tablespoons of chocolate pudding mix with 3 scoops of the vanilla protein. The shake was actually pretty decent with just that small addition that was probably only about 30 calories. I'm going to try butterscotch tomorrow and I'm going to pick up some other flavors to see how they work out.

    This might be common knowledge, but I had no idea it would work and it might save someone from tossing out their shitty protein stash. I'm not sure this would work well with any flavor other than vanilla, but it's worth a shot.

    ^Good idea. I have been getting so disgusted lately with my chocolate protein with water mix. I'm gonna have to try this one.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how well it would work with chocolate protein unless you added chocolate pudding mix to make it taste more like chocolate. Who knows though? Other powders might work as well :dunno:

    I don't know if it's worth the calories... but it's worth a shot.
    Someone also recommended cocoa mix for the chocolate shake too. I might try that depending on the calorie count.

    Mine was only a 30 calorie addition. I can definitely spare that for a decent tasting shake.

    30 calories... Jesus just run up and down the stairs a couple of times if you're worried. And by stairs I mean the escalator!

    vanilla is kind of a blank canvas. Adding pretty much anything sweet to it will only make it better.
