What can i add to protein shake to make it taste less sweet ?

I have just got some blueberry flavour whey from myprotein and while the quality&mixability is good it tastes sweeter than a bag of sugar. I've tried blending a banana with it this morning thinking it might take or distract from the sweetness of it but it is still very overpowering and too sweet for my liking.
Any ideas what else i could try it with, i was thinking peanut butter next but after that im all out of ideas.

Get some unflavoured whey and mix 50:50.  I never use flavoured protein for this reason, always better to use your own flavouring or get flavoured carb powders.

Add more water, it should thin it out a bit and dilute the sweetness

More water and go for unflavoured or one with less sugar next time.
Can't stomach the thought of blueberry and peanut butter together though.

don't think theres a lot of sugar in it, pretty certain its to do with the flavouring or sweetener in it but its way too sweet.
Still the strawberry and rasperry flavour i ordered is fine.

Add more water or mix what protein you have left with unflavoured protein, or add plain yoghurt to your shake, or use less protein per serving
