A common way to go is a pure protein supplement (whey or egg) and grape juice. You can also use maltodextrin, but I'm not sure of the health implications of that route. Basic rule--find supplements with as few ingredients as possible.

By separating the protein and carbs, you can control how much of each you take dependent on the training they follow--if you use a combined supplement, you're stuck with whatever ratio the company decided was good.
