    Cheaper route?

    Get the oats from Asda/Sainsburys etc for about £1, and then use the £1.50 you saved on the flavoured version.

    it's not that much more money

    any flavouring system like nesquick is likely to contain heavy sugars

    just got flavoured than save the pennies

    Unflavoured whey from MyProtein just tastes like normal milk to me when mixed. I usually mix it with some Nesquick and that does to job

    Asda smart price porridge oats are around 50p for a kilo. Put them in a blender and you're gonna save a lot of money.

    Not sure that'd make them small enough tbh. Maybe I just have a crap blender, but when I use cheap ass supermarket oats it's nowhere near as nice as myprotein oats.

    I've never used the unflavoured whey. Flavoured stuff isn't that much more expensive though. Choc smooth whey + oats + milk = nice!

    Yeah I buy this, although I don't bother mixing it with nesquick, providing you are okay with the taste of milk/gloopy water you should be okay.

    hi guys,

    i've been looking at some supplement products, and i've decided to order 'instant oats' from MP (http://www.myprotein.co.uk/bulk-powd.../instant-oats/) and mix it with whey protein powder and milk to make a reasonably healthy shake

    what i can't decide on is whether it'd be better to use the cheaper unflavoured whey protein (http://www.myprotein.co.uk/bulk-supp...nflavoured%29/) or get a flavoured whey protein (http://www.myprotein.co.uk/bulk-powd...-whey-protein/)

    i'd rather go the cheaper route, and then i'd end up adding some chocolate milk powder or something to try and give it a decent flavour :p: but I was wondering whether anyone's had any bad experiences taste-wise with the bulk unflavoured whey and whether that'd be a bad idea?
    Used unflavoured whey from myprotein for a long time.
    The taste takes a while getting used to. But it just tastes like milk after a while.

    Switched to strawberry and choc flavour few months ago. They're so sweet that it's sickly.

    Verdict: stick with unflavoured - 1) it doesn't taste that bad, 2) it's much cheaper, 3) it has no artificial sweeteners
