Chocolate Whey Protein Shakes

So I've decided to kick it back into gear and return to a regular gym schedule. I'm changing things up from the last time I worked out regularly when I was more concerned about losing weight. This time around I'm working on toning my whole body and rotating work out days of arms, legs, cardio 6 days a week.

So to help with this effort I've started watching what I eat, prepping meals and upping my protein intake to build muscle and have sustainable energy. Soooo I've found some great protein bars that are low sugar, low fat and low carb but I got some protein powder as well to change things up. I went with chocolate which is my preferred flavor but I didn't realize there was a difference between typical protein powder and whey protein. The whey has a really weird/ bad taste....

So my question is, does anyone have any ideas what I can add into my chocolate whey powder to make it taste better? I've tried peanut butter which works well but is high in sugar and calories... I've also tried almond milk which I love on its own but just tasted bad with the whey. If anyone has any ideas I could use 'em, I have a big tub of the stuff.

I make whey protein shakes with greek yogurt, bananas, and strawberries. With the chocolate and strawberries, you get a shake that tastes like neopolitan ice cream and it's smooth because of the yogurt. You just need a decent blender.

I should invest in a blender, I just got a rice cooker too and I love it Tongue thanks for the idea it sounds good enough to be a dessert!
