How to Improve Any Protein Shake

If you are really running behind, there are ways to make your protein shake taste better.

While any protein shake will do, you can upgrade your shake with a few different items to make them taste completely different.

The first thing is to use milk with your protein shake. If you use water, you will not believe the difference in flavor. If you already use milk, try vitamin D milk... it's like a milkshake.

If you have a personal shake blender, adding peanut butter, bananas, or try creating your own flavors.
