I’m not looking to add pounds of muscle, but in managing my weight I stick to a low carb, high protein diet. Part of that diet includes protein drinks either after a workout or sometimes as a quick meal replacement.

The problem with protein drinks is that they taste like liquid chalk, and they are expensive! I took a chance at the local Wal-Mart a few weeks ago on Six Star Professional Strength Muscle Building Shake.

This mix has 280 calories, less than 5g or sugar, and 33g of protein in each serving. It was about half the cost of Muscle Milk protein powder. The best part of the mix though is the taste. Even with very little sugar it tastes much better than most drinks I have tried.

For a special treat blend in a frozen banana and a little peanut butter for a truly delicious high protein desert!
