Protein shakes have come a long way since the 1970’s in terms of quality, mix-ability and flavour.

In the early days of the protein shake, you needed a blender to mix the powder thoroughly.

And you had to add fruits, chocolate milk and even ice cream to make it palatable.

Today’s protein shakes have been “instant-ized”. You can easily mix them with a spoon or by vigorously shaking in a bottle for 20 seconds.

And the flavours have expanded beyond Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry.

There are brands that have interesting flavours such as “Toffee Caramel Fudge”, “Peanut Butter Chocolate”, “White Chocolate”, “Cookies and Cream” and “Mint Chocolate Chip”.
