Default Favorite Protein Powder

I was wondering what your favorite low carb protein powder is? Just looking for alternatives instead of spending the money on Ideal Protein.

Pure Protein frosty chocolate has to be one of my favs. I make it per instructions, and add 8 oz of water, a starbucks via packet, and one oz of sf hazelnut syrup. it's been a breakfast mainstay for me for a couple of months now.

Just so I'm clear , you add 8 additional ounces of water?

I liked the 90% protein from Weider, the vanilla one, when I mix it with less water than what is suggested, it tastes kind of like cereal instead of of a shake where the flavor get lost.

Designer Whey makes a great protein powder. To the strawberry, I add frozen berries, sugar-free raspberry syrup, ice & blend with water. For the chocolate flavor, I blend it with the following: espresso powder, sugar-free chocolate syrup, ice & water. Yum!

I like this one too as it is sweetened with stevia.

I use the CytoSport 100% whey chocolate powder. I get mine from Costco,
6 lbs for just under $40, only 130 calories. It is a little too sweet for me so I add 1.5 cups water, more filling that way No bad aftertaste.

I tried the vanilla Designer Whey a few years ago and hated it due to some kind of weird aftertaste I now associate with protein drinks.

Be careful of the protein powders that contain high calories.
