How do you feel about mixing some dried skimmed milk into shakes? I wasn't sure whether to put this in the nutrition or supplement forum.

It's really cheap and has a high protein content. I heard mixing it into milk was an old-school trick in the days before protein supplements became wide-spread. I've recently started supplementing with whey shakes but I thought maybe mixing a bit of this in could make my whey supplies last a bit longer. Maybe it would even improve them by making a blend of proteins that would be superior to just whey.

Thoughts?

I've done it before. It's actually very yummy.

Does it make the milk you are mixing it with thick?

Not thick, more like a malt.

I haven't done it yet but I'll probably pick up a bag on the weekend. I'll let you know how it turns out. It could be a neat little trick for the students or those struggling with money.
