A couple of weeks ago when I decided to kick my weightlifting up a notch, I knew I needed to find a great protein powder. I’ve tried a bunch of different ones in the past and always end up giving them to my boyfriend because I can’t stand the taste. You know that taste – yuck.
I spent an hour or so one afternoon researching some of the best tasting protein powders that are still healthy.
I ended up buying a small package of Isopure Low Carb Dutch Chocolate:
This protein powder contains:
- 100% whey protein
- 50 grams of protein per serving
- 220 calories per serving
- 3 grams of carbs per serving
- 0 grams of sugar
- Aspartame free
- Lactose free
All really great attributes for a protein powder.. but how does it taste? Really good!
It has an after flavor for sure, but it’s not the gross kind I usually associate with protein powders. It’s barely noticeable actually. I mix the Isopure protein powder in a glass of ice water, but I imagine if you mixed it in milk it would taste a whole lot like chocolate milk.
It blends pretty well into a glass of water without needing to dirty up a blender every night. I just pour two scoops right on top of the ice:
I then mix it either with a spoon or a little wooden ice pop stick (I have a bunch of these left over from when I made cake pops last Thanksgiving):
You can see it doesn’t mixed quite as well as when you use a blender, but it does mix really, really well without one which I like. I’m kind of lazy and I hate washing the blender everyday!
Isopure products are a little bit pricier than your average protein powder. A three pound tub will set you back about $50 and the little bag shown here will cost you about $20 on Amazon. The little bag contains about 7 servings if you use 2 scoops (which I do).
Overall this is the best tasting protein powder I’ve ever used and I definitely plan on buying it again!
Which protein powders do you really love? I’m always on the hunt for a great tasting chocolate or peanut butter flavored powder!
