Premier Protein Cafe' Latte! Also the PP pumpkin Spice but it's seasonal.

I'm currently on the pre-op liquid diet and wanted to use vegan Protein Powder for all my shakes but ultimately couldn't stomach them, especially since they can't be mixed with fruit or veggies during this high Protein phase. So I'm drinking Premier Protein shakes which are DELICIOUS. Cafe Latte is my favorite!

For ready-to-drink shakes, I like Equate High Protein caramel flavor. My coworkers turned me on to it and said that it tastes exactly like Premier Protein caramel but cheaper.

Before my pre-op diet, I didn't have much experience with protein powder, so I ordered a bunch of single-serve samples from different companies. Once you start buying these online, you'll see nonstop ads for protein powders on Facebook. You do need to look at the nutrition labels and make sure they meet your requirements.

My favorite that I've tried is IdealLean. This is the only one that I purchased a big tub without trying the sample first because it was on sale at a good price. I bought a big tub of chocolate brownie flavor and samples of others, and I liked every one that I tried from IdealLean (chocolate coconut, chocolate mint, and strawberries & cream). I mix them with almond milk, by the way. I also purchased a lemonade clear whey from there but didn't care for it much (I've found that I don't like clear Protein Drinks in general -- I just don't like the protein aftertaste).

I also got samples from:

  • 1Up Nutrition (chocolate Peanut Butter was my favorite; I also liked mint Cookies & cream and coconut ice cream)
  • Northbound Nutrition Waves of Whey (mini marshmallow was good, cinnamon frosting was pretty good but I wouldn't want a whole tub, chocolate freak shake was terrible)
  • Strength (belgian chocolate is good but I prefer IdealLean chocolate brownie)
  • KetoShop (unicorn vanilla milkshake and cinnamon roll were decent; I haven't tried chocolate and strawberry yet)

I like Body Fortress. They look like laundry pods! You can throw them in the blender with some almond milk and have a decent shake.

I love Ghost and Premier. Ghost has some super fun flavors and they are in the nutritional parameters that my program follows.

I live in Australia, and I haven't been able to get my hands on the legendary premier shakes. The ones that are commercially available here don't taste good to me and I've tried a lot over the last three years. I can tolerate them but I tend to make my own with chocolate Protein powder (or unflavoured and cocoa powder), Peanut Butter, frozen banana, honey ice and skim milk. I don't mind making them, I feel like some fancy YouTuber. Otherwise, I'm one of those people who goes to some cafe and pays ridiculous amounts of money for them (as long as the ingredients look pretty clean). Well, back in the days where I actually got to leave the house and go to work.... sigh.

Hey I'm in Australia too.

I get my powder online all the time via aminoz.com.au

they usually have good deals and quick delivery.

I've been using scitec nutrition 100% whey for like a year now they are very good quality and nutritional values and I've lost plenty of weight on it.

I buy powder in bulk like 2kgs or more :)

ditto on premier cafe latte. it's my fave. I can drink it everyday. I have the powder too, but it's not as good as the shake. sometimes I mix one scoop with cold coffee, milk, maybe chia seeds, and ice in my vitamix to make a frappuccino type drink.

I am currently trying to get my hands on the pumpkin spice. the premier oat Protein Shake apple cinnamon flavor is good for a change of pace and has a lot of much needed Fiber (7g). I honestly don't love the ingredient list for premier shakes and powders, but I have tried many brands and I find premier to be the best tasting even if it's not the "cleanest."

I drink Ensure Max Protein Cafe Mocha and Fairlife Vanilla now, both have 30 gms of protein. When I had my sleeve in 2011 Premier Protein only had vanilla and chocolate flavors and I drank enough of them to last me the rest of my life.

I'm looking for a new one myself. I used to swear by Eat The Bear, but last year they unexpectedly closed up shop and disappeared with everyone's money. You can still find it on Amazon and Walmart.com, but by now it's got to be getting kind of old since they aren't making it anymore.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
