I have found a really good vanilla protein powder at Hy-Vee and I'm now on the hunt for some other flavors. I haven't found a chocolate one that actually tastes decent and isn't super gritty. Has anyone had any luck and found a good tasting protein powder? I'm up for any flavors. I like to make smoothies for breakfast, but I want to start using it for snacks or lunch too. I think if I could find a good chocolate one it might curb some of those chocolate cravings. Also, if anyone has a really good, but not super high calorie protein shake or smoothie recipe that would be great too. Thanks in advance!

Trutein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and CinnaBun are the two best I've ever tried.

I just buy the Body Fortress brand at Walmart. Like the chocolate peanutbutter one. Blend with a ice, frozen banana, some water + unsweetened almond milk. Or the vanilla creme with a frozen pear done like that is good too. Or that with a frozen banana, pineapple and splash of orange juice or coconut extract = tropical flavor. Not a fan of the chocolate or strawberry flavor they make.

I like EAS 100% Whey. It mixes easily with milk or water and tastes pretty good for what it is. BJs has it for ~$20/5 lb bag.

I like my chocolate "Betty Lou's: Low Glycemic Protein Shake". Costco used to sell them online, but not anymore. I add some peanut butter and a banana - for an awesome yummy meal in a cup!
