If you happened to buy a bad tasting chocolate protein powder
lately and wish you would have bought a chocolate chip mint
powder instead, you can turn your shake into one very easily.
Just buy a small bottle of peppermint/mint extract from the grocery store,
( it will cost you about 1.00 or so) and add 2 to 3 drops of it to your regular
chocolate protein shake while mixing.
It mimics the good 100% Whey chocolate mint powder shake flavor
well enough and will help you to use up that cheaper chocolate protein
powder you may have bought but aren't using much.
I also use banana extract, as well as orange and vanilla for different shakes.

There are plenty of foul tasting shake powders, if you like mocha you might try some instant coffee or kalua with your chocolate, or even a little vannilla extract with chocolate shakes is good.

Extracts are found in the cooking section by the yeasts, cookie sprinkles
and stuff. When i was younger and was into the unhealthy milkshakes,
i use to make a killer chcolate shake with vanilla in it as well.
You're right, vanilla extract in a chocolate protein shake is good too.

Vanilla extract:
Total fat 0
cholesterol 0
sodium 0.4mg
potassium 6.2mg
carbs 0.5mg
protein 0
That's per teaspoon...I assume banana, orange and mint are similar
in calories.

I wouldn't put Kahlua in a protein shake- I think I remember reading that alcohol hurts protein synthesis.

Head over to Trueprotein.com and check out their flavorings. You can get some pretty quality stuff there to spice up your shakes.

I recommend the banana, but I'm such a banana freak. I'm biased.

Get the vanilla extract substitute... no calories.

Also, for a treat, mix 1 tbsp of vanilla extract into one glass of skim milk and add a packet or two of Splenda. It tastes like melted ice cream.

Where do you find the vanilla extract substitute? Does it say substitute on it?
