Hmmm... Do you think the powder tastes better than the pre-made shakes? I can't get over the taste of the pre-made Premier... I've tried the vanilla, chocolate, caramel and Cookies and cream. I really did WANT to like it, I just couldn't do it...

I've never liked Premier pre-made shakes, either (but I know a lot of people love them). I can taste the Protein in them. The only pre-made shakes that I like are Unjury and Fairlife. In general, I do like powders better, even though they're more of a hassle. Some of the powders I don't care for, but there are several that I like.

Absolutely!! The pre made tastes very milky and way artificially sweet. The powder is thick but I add ice with soy milk and I’ve never had a problem with taste. Also I forgot to mention I add PB2 to the shake. Gives it a great flavor & more Protein.

Thank you so much, OP, for asking this question! It's something I've been wondering about as well. :)

My mom used Bariatric Advantage banana flavor when she was pre-op. I can't stand the texture (it always comes out gritty for some reason.) I've been drinking Premier's new cafe latte flavor (does contain caffeine which I know a lot of pre-op diets restrict- I'm 8 months out from surgery so not an issue for me yet) every morning for Breakfast and love it. The peach and cinnamon roll flavors are really good as well.

A co-worker recommended Syntrax Nectar to me and I was able to find a 15 pack trial kit online for about $35. It should be here in the next couple of days. The fuzzy navel one sounds delish and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Try Bowmar, they have a sample pack with like 20-25 different Protein flavors and most are pretty good and they fall within the criteria of the pre op diet.
