Which Isopure flavors taste the best?
Over the past few months, I’ve been investigating Isopure protein. It contains zero carbs, since the whey protein used to make it is processed in such a way as to remove impurities. (Optimum Gold Standard whey contains 3 grams of carbohydrate for every 24 grams of protein, by comparison.)
The downside of Isopure is that some of the flavors aren’t as good as the others. My favorites are Mango Peach (above) and Dutch Chocolate. And while you can never go wrong with chocolate, I strongly recommend the Mango Peach since it’s such a refreshing change from the typical protein powders. Strawberry or banana protein powders are seldom good, which leaves you with vanilla, chocolate, uh…. vanilla… cake… and… chocolate… cake?
Another standout flavor from Isopure is the Toasted Coconut flavor. It’s not often you’ll find coconut-flavored protein powder. This works amazingly well as a shake mixed with almond milk.
I use the Isopure Mango Peach flavor in my HPLC Three-Layer Jello recipe here on High Protein Low Crap, and I use the Isopure Dutch Chocolate in the HPLC Protein Pudding recipe. Both of these recipes are super-simple, require no cooking, and are a great compliment to the real food you’re eating.
