    Ive been told from various people at supplement stores that Muscle Milk and Myoplex are cheap shit. Oh Yeah is decent.

    Im looking for something that is lactose free. Any recommendations?

    Isopure, if you're just looking for protein that is.

    They all taste a tad odd* to me but the store inside my university's gym has a wide selection of brands, so I've tried almost all of them. Isopure is almost definitely lactose-free, as for others, Monster Milk is probably my favorite, just based on taste**, and that one is also lactose free IIRC.

    *odd as in, I used to buy and drink muscle milk's chocolate flavor daily for years and yet the premade RTD version always tasted different and in my opinion slightly worse.

    **My advice is to aim for chocolate, it's the hardest flavor to mess up so bad you loath finishing the shake. Sure raspberry/orange/etc sounds delicious, but remember, this isn't ice cream, this is a low sugar supplement where not making you wretch is an improvement over prior year's formulae.

    At $4 per 16oz, they're certainly not cheap.

    The cost isnt an issue as much as the taste.

    I just cant stomach the taste of protein powder in water, even mixed with other shit. The RTD shakes always taste better to me.

    Mix the powder with homemade juices, raw milk or yogurt.

    Or just stop whining and drink it, its not supposed to be a gourmet meal.

    try going with a different type/brand of protein. what brands and flavors have you been getting along with what type of protein have you been using? that could make a huge difference.

    I agree. I've been using Isopure and it's really good. Has a high amount of amino's with glutamine, which is ideal for recovery. I used to take Syntha-6 too (it has Aminogen). It taste great and is pretty good, price-wise. It's a casein protein though. Casein is better before you go to bed, because it processes slower (4-6 hours) than regular whey isolate protein (better after workouts). Look into that too, depending on which you prefer.
