Protein Shakes for meal replacements

I was wondering what type of protein you all use after the gym/ for meal replacements!
(whey, soy, casein and the brands)
Thanks!!!!

    I use whey. The brand I use is Syntrax Nectar. Awesome flavor variety and only 100 calories for 24 grams of protein.

    I use muscle tech whey protein. It is chocolate and I mix it with water it tastes great. 20 g of protein and 120 calories. I drink it when I need a chocolate fix too!

    ETA: I do not drink protein shakes for a meal replacement. I drink them after my workout or sometimes in the afternoon when I need a snack but never as a meal replacement.

    I'm lactose intolerant, so right now I'm experimenting with alternatives to complete whey. The Syntrax Nectar is a whey protein isolate like Soccer_Chick mentioned, and I love it! I also like the Jay Robb egg white protein chocolate, but it's terribly expensive. The two I don't like so much is Biochem Vegan (pea protein) and Full Circle non-GMO organic soy protein.

    I've got 2 on the go at the moment, Optimum Nutrition Whey and Syntha 6 (A blend I think) @ about 22 grams of protein to 190 calories.

    ON is great when you need the protein, but can't spare the calories. Sytha is delish and much better in baked goodies too.

    I am a Syntrax lover too!! the flavors are great and they mix easily.

    I suggest the variety sampler pack to anyone that has never tried Syntrax.

  • What's this? You can put protein drinks in baked goods? That's awesome! What do you usually mix them into?

    I put it in everything, and you don't necessarily need a special recipe that includes it. Cookies, cakes, fudge, muffins, both sweet and savory. I even mix vanilla wpi with milk before pouring over cereal.

    Protein powder isn't a meal replacement.

    I use GNC whey...vanilla is spectacular. Chocolate is ok but tastes a lot like cocoa....wish it was sweeter and I often mix ovaltine with it to make it sweeter. The vanilla is freaking awesome in OJ!
