Protein shake / protein substitute

FRANCE - french
Hi !

Does anyone knows what a protein shake means in french ?
Is it un mélange de protéines ? Or une boisson à base de protéines ?

The context is : a man is on diet, he doesn't eat carbs but would have a protein shake or either a protein substitute.

For the second one, I would say protéines de substitution, but I'm not sure of that. Would you rather say it is un complément (hyper-)protéiné ?

Thanks for you help !

    For protein shake, "boisson à base de proteines" sound better.
    In french, we call that "un substitut de repas" so, I think you can say "un substitut de repas hyperproteiné"; it explain protein shake AND protein substitute
