Progain: Having issues drinking it all.

Now usually I'll down anything down instantly, but Progain from Maximuscle (Banana flavour) isn't the easiest of things to drink. I put 2 scoops in the shaker and added 500ml as it asked, shook it up but the taste was near unbearable. I'm thinking I made it incorrectly, like I added too much power than I should have.

On the packet it says it's supposed to have a nice taste, but that's far from the truth. I have only tried it once, drank half of it and couldn't do anymore.

It is two FULL TO THE TOP scoops right? Shook well with 500ML OF WATER? If there's an easier way to make it drinkable I'd love to know. I really want to use it, this is my first time using any muscle enhancing drinks so I'd love to get it right.

Cheers, sorry for my newbie ways and my crap knowledge at this sort of thing.

    But I've bought it now and I have a whole tub. I'm going to use it if it kills me >_> I'm just thinking would it be that bad if I put say 1 whole scoop in the shaker with 500ML of water? I mean the powder's still in there and there's nothing being lost as far as I can tell. It's just 2 whole scoops and water tastes like plaster you put on the walls. (May be a slight exaggeration) I couldn't drink that again, maybe my body just can't take that much straight away, after all; protein is what I'm after and may be what I've neglected myself anyway?

    So it's alright just to use one scoop instead? Then adding a bit more and more over time when I get used to the taste. By doing this 4 times a day rather than doing it 2 times a day with 2 scoops a time will give the same effect won't it?

    Yup it is. Well I'm planning on having one in the moring after breakfast, then one after workout in the afternoon to start off with. Does that seem right? Or should I be doing it more than twice?
