    I think they recently started offering flavours but I have been mixing up my own with their natural cacoa and stevia and I second what chilli said about the cacao it is awesome. I just mix up the 1kg bags in big bucket I got from the dollar shop.

    I also got some cinnamon and vanilla flavouring from him for when I want to mix it up and it's awesome.

    I usually get NZ WPI although the US one is great/just as good. I'm partial to the NZ one though

    very good value if you buy in bulk, I've found, yeah.

    I get unflavoured but I've tried the flavoured ones and they are fantastic. they use the products they sell for flavouring so the stevia they sell is used o sweeten it (no bitterness, it's really good), and the raw cacao, berries etc.

    he's not selling lucuma powder but you have to try the cacao + cinnamon + lucuma mixed together

    swoon ... even cinnamon, vanilla + lucuma.

    Lucuma tastes kinda like toffee/caramel. Brilliant food and wonderful flavouring to add to shakes or anything.

    I get this one as it's really good: Loving Earth - Lucuma Powder - Raw Organic

    they list stockists around australia on their site.

    Thanks for the input guys, am kind of sick of going through 5kg bags so been looking for a cheap bulk alternative.

    Could just add flavouring each time I go to use it this way, rather than trying to mix the whole lot up at once. And if I get a bit adventurous, could try some of my own flavourings.

    Was about to suggest Loving Earth as some options for flavouring...
    The Agave syrup could go alright in place of Stevia?
    This is seriously nice, I go through jars of this stuff: Loving Earth - Coconut Chocolate Butter - Raw Organic

    that's what I do Stew...I just mix up whatever flavour I feel like at the time.
    Gives you the best of all worlds


    A nice way to get fruit flavourings in there without adding too many carbs and not make it a smoothie is to pulverise some freeze-dried fruit in a food processor and add that.

    I've been using this brand, but there are others. Often found in health food shops or organic stores but you can buy directly from them:

    I tried making up one shake at a time with flavouring but the stevia and cocoa are really potent hard to get the mix right it's much more forgiving when you make up like a kilo at a time. I usually make up a bucket of vanilla and a bucket choc so I have some variety. I keep some plain on hand cause I will buzz it in with a shot of espresso some mornings for a protein cappucino.

    5g cacao for a 30g dose of wpi about 1 tsp

    stevis goes by less is more ... 1/16th tsp is enough for a shake!!
