Buying protein powder can be intimidating, especially for the first time. What if you don’t like the one you purchase and waste $30-75 on a useless tub of yucky powder?

 

First off, if you are a newb to protein powders, I highly recommend using a blender or Magic Bullet to make your shakes. Simply put your protein powder, milk of choice, fruit (I love to use bananas,) and peanut butter in your blender with a cup of ice cubes. It will taste like a milkshake and will be much more appetizing than drinking water and protein powder mixed alone.

 

When you go to buy, be sure to express to the worker at the supplement store that you are looking for a product with good taste so they can guide you in the right direction. Made the wrong choice? Have no fear! Most supplement stores will return an opened product for store credit. It may take a couple of tries before you find one that you like, but it will be totally worth it in the long run! If you are just starting out and struggling to hit all of your protein from your regular diet, protein shakes can be a great way to add in more.
