hmmmm. interesting q. i had a HORRIBLE time with protein drinks, until i stopped putting them into a blender. All that air HURT!!!!! another thing i did was to eat them with a spoon. Also, mixing some of the protein into LF/FF plain yogurt made a nice pudding-like treat.
NOW, everything i just said works - but if you REALLY do have some problem with artificial sweeteners, you'll have to try to find an unsweetened protein source. i wish i had some advice. maybe an egg-white based protein? i think that there are powdered egg whites in a can that i've seen in the baking aisle. i have no idea what to actually do with them, but at least it's a good source of protein that doesn't involve wiating ordering off the internet.
good luck! keep us posted.
