I like pure whey protein isolate with cocoa powder, instant coffee, maple syrup, coconut milk, water

But why would you want to eat at the gym anyways? Anything consumed less than 2 hours before exercise will just cause an insulin spike. The notion that consuming calories during a workout will help your workout is a myth, you're better off just drinking water. And if it's for immediately after, you're better off just packing a lunch made of real food :)

It's easier at the gym to take a shake than to cook a steak. Unless you're really paleo and eat it all raw.

Why powder protein when it tastes better as a steak?

yeah i do, works fine compared to cows milk as well. I usually use 'lite' coconut milk as i find it emulsifies with the whey protein powder more easily.

using chocolate powder with the coconut milk makes it taste like you're drinking a bounty bar too

I'm looking for some camping food for an extended backpacking trip and wondering if this mixture you're talking about would be worth considering.

Away from home, no refrigeration, unfortunately means no fresh or perishable food. Planning to carry a month's worth means everything needs to be lightweight, dehydrated or freeze dried. I use some backpacker meals, jerky, dried fruit, nuts and berries and seeds, etc., but looking for another source of healthy protein and fat.

One of my favorite snacks is a can of coconut milk and a scoop or two of chocolate whey protein powder. Also works well as a meal-replacement when time is tight! Freaking delicious. Non-paleo friends and co-workers have tasted it and love it too. :)

I tried coconut milk, it tasted really bad to me. I do mix gelatin into plain milk from time to time.

Yes, I do. Although Protein powder isn't paleo I do like mixing it with my coconut water after a workout.

I have done it before in the past, but I've personally found that coconut milk irritates my guts unless cooked first, so if I do have protein powder (not very often), it's simply in water.

I did. Now I do the coconut milk with egg yolks and skip the protein powder. Mainly because I ran out and didn't want to buy any more. But I think I get enough protein with the eggs.

While I don't consume a lot of protein powder, when I do have a protein shake, I always mix with water and a few ounces of coconut milk. It tastes better and has a nicer mouth feel.
