    Raj, i was at the store the other day looking for Whey Protein Isolate. there were at least 10 different brands. do you recommend any specific brand or is there something i should look out for in its ingredients? by the way, the recipe looks delicious 🙂

      I prefer Optimum Nutrition. Their ‘vanilla ice cream’ flavor and ‘extreme milk chocolate’ flavor are pretty awesome and they are very reasonably priced. Try out the other flavors to see what you like best. You’ll save a tonne of money if you order it online (Amazon or Bodybuilding.com).

      If you’re going for a different brand make sure “per serving”

      I’m also a HUGE fan of Jay Robb’s 🙂 All the whey comes from grass fed cows, no artificial sweeteners (stevia is used), and casein free. I personally find the chocolate to be too sweet for a smoothie (but I usually add some fruit) so I do a half scoop of the chocolate and half of an unflavored whey powder. My husband, on the other hand, loves a whole scoop of Jay Robb’s with peanut butter, milk, and ice.
