Anyone ever attempt to make their own Primal Fuel? I'm referring to this one if it wasn't obvious -- http://primalblueprint.com/products/Primal-Fuel.html

I've always used the cold filtered whey protein isolate from truenutrition.com. Another vendor of bulk protein powders is proteinfactory.com. Do some Google searching, and you should also be able to find organic/pastured/etc.

I don't see why you couldn't use powdered coconut milk. After all, that's what Sisson uses. I use canned coconut milk because it's readily available; I've never come across powdered coconut milk. As for whey protein, my only suggestion is to buy just the protein and not the flavored protein shake mixes. Most whey protein contains a tiny amount of soy lecithin so that it mixes instantly with water; it is possible to get whey protein with sunflower lecithin. Personally, I don't worry about that. In the past, I've never bothered getting whey from pastured cows, but that is also available. Cont...

I haven't made a ready-mix powder like Primal Fuel, but I was making whey protein shakes with coconut milk long before Sisson came out with his product. The base is a scoop of pure whey protein isolate, a few ounces of canned coconut milk, and water. Flavoring is fruit juice concentrate or maple syrup with one spoon each of cocoa powder and instant coffee. It's not as convenient as mixing a single powder with water, but it's also not ridiculously expensive like Primal Fuel. Plus, there's control over the flavor and quality of ingredients.

Best shaker bottle EVAR!: BlenderBottle.
