Metabolic Drive Orange Recipes

  Trying to be a bit more adventurous with my protein powder, I ordered a tub of Metabolic Drive orange along with my usual choco and vanilla. Well, the orange just doesn't do it for me. The taste is awful - somewhat medicinal. Obviously, I can't return it so I'm  hoping that someone has some recipes using Metabolic Drive orange. 

Thanks in advance.

Put in some frozen pineapple and scoop of Power Drive for an orange-pineapple power breakfast.

HMMM not sure I find It a nice change from time to time. Um have you tried adding fruit to it. Some rum might be good as well :slight_smile: or vodka :slight_smile:

I too have gotten the orange flavor and there’s not much about the flavor that reminds me of an orange. I have not found anything to mix with it to make it taste better besides ice cream but whats the point.

I am interested if anyone has any good recipes for this flavor as well. Its pretty tuff to swallow on its own.

LOL! This sounds good too, but…

Thanks for asking this question. I’m in the same position as you. How did they ever came up with the idea for that flavor?! :stuck_out_tongue:

Ok I have been trying some different mixtures and the one I tried last night is so far the best I have come up with.

2 scoops of Metabolic Drive Orange
1 Banana
5 Pineapple Chunks
2 tbs of flax seed oil

Not Bad but not great either.

Another thing I thought was using one of the recipes from the Eating For Life book.

2 scoops whey protien in this case Metabolic Drive Orange
12 oz Diet Orange Soda
Fat Free Orange Yogart
Ice…

I have tried this with vanilla protien powders and its really good so it may be something to try.

Let us know if anyone tries this last recipe before I get a chance to.
