Default Protein powder recommendation?

Can anyone recommend a protein powder to me? Ideally I want something that's pretty much just protein - something I can add to smoothies or veggies so they fill me up more.

I have tried a few and never like them enough to even finish the container.

One I don't mind is the Whey Gourmet juice ones, becuase they are less calories and just like a cup of juice.

A friendly recently told me about Fiber35 FitSmart - I haven't tried it yet but he swears by it. His mom owns a health store chain and he has tried probably ever one and all the bars and says he likes this best. He said he likes the Vanilla one and then mixes it with frozen berries in the blender. I really wanna try it but i still have a huge thing of some chocolate one I bought :/

I'm a big fan of hemp protein powder. The nutiva hemp shakes are pretty good. http://nutivahempshake.com/

I've used Designer Whey and liked it a lot - I just tried Casein Protein from Optimum Nutrition (it's supposed to be a slower-acting protein), and so far, I think I like it - we're still in the trial period!!

The protein powders I'm using now were purchased from Trader Joe's. One is their store brand of soy protein powder (soy isolate); I like it quite a bit because it's got no sweetener in, and it blends very well. I add it to smoothies or to things I am baking. I also have a whey protein powder from there, which is sweetened with sucralose--it's easy to blend too, but sweeter than I like, so I only use a little bit of it at a time. Often I use both of these different powders in a smoothie for myself or my kids, works pretty well. Both of them are basically no carbs, and all their calories come from protein.

Default Vitalady

If you just want to sample some to see if you like them go to Vitalady.com and they usually have sample packs that you can try. I personally like the Nectars: Roadside Lemonade, Fuzzy Navel, Lemon Tea, Designer Whey's Whey Isolaate Promergranate Fruit, Mattrix Cookies and Cream, Chocolate amd Verry Vanilla and PVL Radical Raspberry. I think I like the fruity ones better.
