I suppose if there is a protein shake out there that fit's I could add some carb's to it and get about a 50/50 mix. I don't mind if it's powder or pre-mixed.
Out of curiosity, why are you worried about the Stevia ? It's an naturally sweet plant extract as opposed to an artificial sweetner.
No glucomic effect, and you should be able to take unless you have an allergy to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, or daisies (it's from a related plant.)
Other then some "potential" side affects that were theorized but never supported I couldn't find any actual side affects when I started my research. It's been used as a food additive since the 70's in Japan and Europe without reported problems...
I actually settled on the Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein (Natural) for that reason. (It tastes decent too... which helps.)
