How to Make Whey Protein Taste Better
Unflavored whey protein has a dairy-like taste to it so it pairs well with many types of food that go well with foods like yogurt and ice cream. You could purchase pre-flavored whey protein but many of those are flavored with artificial sweeteners like aspartame or sucralose. An artificial sweetener is a replacement for sugar or other sweets that attempts to provide the same sweet taste with fewer calories. However, artificial sweeteners might actually make us hungrier and make us crave sweets. This debate is still ongoing. Instead of pre-flavored whey protein, you can flavor it yourself with some vanilla, honey, cinnamon, or other flavors.
