I just grin and bare it. I use no sweetners nor flavorers in any of my protein formulas (which I get from proteinfactory.com)

i use 50% powdered gatorade and 50% dextrose for my carb source. Once when I ran out of gatorade, I used powdered sugar free jello and it worked quite nicely. Not very much was needed to flavor the entire one-liter drink. I also used powdered sugar free jello to flavor cottage cheese and oatmeal. A little goes a long way, and the calories are very low.

gatorade is good, makes a choclate protein shake taste like a tootsie pop.

I find that the dextrose alone sweetens it up enough to taste good.
