i think you need a neutral tasting powder when mixing just with fruit...or even a fruity tasting powder

if you just use in tablespoon of powdwer...well...thats only maybe 15-20 grams of protein...you might be able to get away without it...you dont want that powdery after taste

there are powders which are more easily soluble and mixes well with fruits

maybe its just a personal preference

also remember...fruit smoothies are full of sugar..even though they have great nutitional value

if you are watching you weight...be careful on how many smoothies you have...they can be high on calories

man, I forgot all about this section.

Optimum !00% whey gold is a solid choice and is a great value. I swtiched to IsoPure low carb cuz I wanted isolates. The chocolate low carb tastes ok...not yummy but ok. I tried the zero carb formula but most of the flavors were nasty...orange pineapple isn't too bad....but the whole carb thing is moot cuz I mix my post work out shake with dextrose for insulin spike anyway

Optimum is a solid brand. I think a lot of people overlook the importance of a casein based powder for the other 90% of the day you don't work out.

thats where ptotein blends come in handy

optimim have Pro-Complex...its a mixtute whey and egg protein

micellar casein is a good protein to take at night also

dorian yates and VPX have meal replacements with micellar casein...not the rubbish that optimum have

calcium caseinate is way inferior than micellar casein

My favourite is:

Fresubin Protein Energy in Wild Srawberry

It's so scrummy I could live on it!!

I start every day with:

Dorset Cereals hearty cranberry and raspberry porridge cooked in the above shake
Topped with a big pile of fresh berried

Washed down with a double espresso or 2!

Must be 700 calories plus but I wake up starving every day and breakfast is my favourite meal of the day!!!
