Good morning! This is my first day I am able to drink smoothies. I made my smoothie with my vanilla flavored Protein and was so disappointed! I can NOT stomach the protein. Not sure if I’d even be able to stomach the flavorless protein powders because the ones I’ve tried also have a taste. They all taste like milk(which I do not enjoy drinking). Are there any supplements or anything else I can take to get my protein in during this phase?

Pinch your nose closed and drink it. That should help.

vanilla Protein tastes pretty gross anyway. Try the chocolate flavors. (Just a suggestion).

I began to hate Protein smoothies and found a juice-like mango flavored drink by Premier Protein. They have other flavors if you don't like mango.

I love the Premier Protein drinks I get them at costco for a lower price. My Favorites are the chocolate, vanilla, Cafe latte and in the Fall the pumpkin spice. I feel for you because luckily for me, I really enjoy them. You can always eat Protein the old fashion way with chicken and fish.

I have the same problem with whey Proteins since my surgery. I have found GENEPRO to be pretty tolerable. I can’t taste it in a fruit smoothie. Might be worth a try.

Maybe it is the whey you might need pea or isolate which is less lactose? Or some people can get protein Water?

You could try a little Hershey Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup mixed in. Try just a teaspoon mixed in 2-3 oz first to make sure you tolerate it well. I was fine with it but it's so much easier to try a shot glass of something and build up.

Also try making it mixed with ice. I could only tolerate it super cold. I also tried the Protein waters but they tasted strong with a bit of a chalky after taste but mixing it with some Water and drinking it over ice it was much better.
