Official Update for 2022
This original post was all about the Shakeology product. Let it be known I no longer use Shakeology and instead, I use Muscle Milk, which is a far better and less expensive product that also tastes better. Muscle Milk is a protein powder that tastes great mixed with water.
If you are looking for a pure protein powder, check out Muscle Milk. Muscle Milk protein powder comes in about 20 different flavors, and is available in 1 lb, 2 lb, 5 lb, and 10 lb containers. Learn more about Muscle Milk. Finally, a protein powder that tastes great mixed with water!
Maybe you prefer all-natural whole-food protein bars. Visit RX Bars for awesome tasting bars. My favorite is Maple Sea Salt.

The Healthiest Meal of the Day
Please note: you’re about to read my original story from 2011.
So I was hungry the other day at work and didn’t have many meal choices. The cafeteria was closed, I didn’t have any money for the vending machine, no protein bars, and only a couple of packets of Sweet & Spicy Tuna in my desk drawer. I’d already eaten tuna earlier that day, so I wasn’t in the mood for more.
What to do? What to do?
Suddenly I remember the two packets of Shakeology protein powder that I got from Beachbody – Greenberry, and Chocolate. Then I got to thinking, “What am I going to mix this with to make it palatable?” I had no milk, no juice, no fruit, no peanut butter, and no blender.
A dead end? Not exactly.
Protein Powder Mixed With Water
I filled my Poland Springs water bottle up with water and some crushed ice from the ice machine. Then I slowly poured some Chocolate Shakeology from the pouch into the bottle, didn’t spill any because the pouch makes a nice pourable V shape, tightened the cap, and vigorously shook up the concoction for about a minute.
At this point, fear overtook me. Not another chocolate protein shake mixed with water. I’ve been through this before. Back in the day, I tried to mix Designer Protein with water and nearly tossed my cookies when I tried to choke it down. Some EAS meal replacement shakes I used to drink were just awful mixed with water. Will this finally be a protein powder that tastes great mixed with water?
What was I about to put myself through?
The Moment of Truth
With the utmost trepidation, I brought the bottle to my nose and took a sniff… interestingly, it smelled like a thick frosty fudge brownie. Still, I did not want to deceive myself about what was about to happen. Protein shakes have smelled good before, only to taste like a chemical cesspool.
As I tipped the bottle back and took my first gulp, I was amazed at the results. There was most definitely a party in my mouth!
How could a low-calorie, low-carb, low-fat protein shake taste so good mixed only with water? And it was then that my mind opened up to the wonderful possibilities that lay ahead of me.
Finally, I can buy a protein powder low enough in calories to use in a fat loss diet, but high enough in nutrients to use in a muscle gain diet, that also tastes awesome! You can mix Chocolate Shakeology with just water and you can shake it up in any kind of bottle you find laying around. Not sure what the outcome would be if you mixed it with a fork or spoon, if I were you I’d go with shaking over mixing.
