Default how do I choke down this whey protein??

Maybe mixing it with milk would be better, but I tried it for lunch (I'm on EFS) with water to save calories and couldn't force it down!!! I was thinking a shake might be better too but that would require buying a blender.

Any other ideas? Please help, I can't drink it if it's always this disgusting!

If you've bought a large amount of it (ie. have to use it) I'd suggest mixing it up ahead of time and getting it nice and cold. In the past when I've had flavours I don't like I found that if it was really cold, and pre-mixed, they were marginally better. Depends on what flavour you've bought but there really is quite a difference. If where you bought it sells sample flavours try a few different kinds.

Although I can mix and drink mine with just cold tap water, I use a shaker cup to mix it. Otherwise you'll get lumps. I really do prefer them in a blender though, usually mixing chocolate flavoured powder with frozen fruit. It's a yummy post workout shake for me. I've never used it as a meal replacement and to be honest I wouldn't suggest it as one. Liquid calories are never very filling.

Oops - was going to add that I tend to mix a chocolate flavoured whey with a fruit flavoured one anyway. I'm never that fond of the straight chocolate ones and the fruit ones are often too sweet for my tastes.

So stupid question, but is it in powder or liquid form? When I use to be on the track team in high school and even through my first semester of college I couldn't mix it with liquids, I would throw up. I ate a lot of yogurt, so I mixed it together. The powder didn't take long to dissolve and I couldn't taste it.

Lots of people put it in their yogurt, cottage cheese, or oatmeal depending on the flavors. I think someone even suggested in sugar free, fat free pudding earlier.

oh I didn't even think about that, that's a good idea! It's the powder form in vanilla flavor. And the only reason I'm using it as a meal replacement is that I'm on EFS and it's one of the listed 4 meals + 2 snacks for the day
