Protein Shake mixes

I currently use a trader joe's whey protein mix, vanilla flavor, for a morning fruit smoothie. I don't like the taste that much and was wondering if anyone has a whey protein they use that tastes good. The only thing is that trader joe's brand is relatively inexpensive. Either that or I'm just making a bad recipe. I usually take milk, add two scoops and some frozen fruit (strawberries or blueberries). A banana might be good too!

I make protein shakes all the time and I personally like GNC's 100% Whey Protein.
