this protein always mixes well, it's practically guaranteed. You don't know how good of a convenience it is until you get a protein that takes 20 hard shakes to get rid of all the clumps. Plus, the scoops are really small for the same amount of grams of protein as everyone else. i hate having to drink large amounts liquids, it makes taking protein a hassle. Chocolate peanut butter wasn't good, for some reason it feels like it has mint, makes my mouth fresh and didn't taste like peanut butter. Delicious strawberry was different from when i first tried it. I think they changed the formula. The taste passes though I always drink my protein with water, anyone who complains just need to add less water to sweeten the shake or add some **** splenda! I've always felt shakes were sweet even with water so i can't even imagine it with milk

Whey is whey alright? Optimum whey... Tastes horrible. PERIOD. I don't know why I decided to give it another shot. But hopefully this is the last time. It mixes well, but the end product is still watery and as far from a chocolate milk as it gets. Go ahead, try it for yourself than come here and write you should have believed it.

If you want a "coffee" flavor, don't even think about the coffee flavor. Get Mocha Cappuccino. Way less "fake" tasting and not as sweet. I definitely want to try mixing in a small amount of cold brew because it is still pretty sweet imo, and actual coffee would cut that. Using almond milk helps fight the "fake sweet" flavor as well.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.


Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
