i have just make some using-
400ml skimmed milk.
30gms- ovaltine
1 scoop of vanilla protien whey
2gm of creatine

because the milk is warm, would this affect either the creatine or whey, [ i know that milk slows down the digestion]
cheers.

As long as you aint boiling the milk then you should be fine, dont know too much about ovaltine, i know what it is but dont have a clue about its nutritional details.

Sounds fine to me, although I usually take creatine postworkout.

doesnt ovaltine contain sugar
/ i thought i looked on the nutrition info once and saw it contained quite a bit of it. i could be wrong though.

That is for a 100g serving. Is that the amount of Ovaltine required for a glass of Ovaltine? :eek:

That is still a lot of sugar IMO. Have you tried adding in some cocoa and maybe a sweetner like stevia or Splenda to help with the taste? Might help keep the cals down a bit, but if you don't have a problem with the calorie content then go for it.

plus the additional 12 grams of sugar from the milk. that makes for almost 35 grams of sugar before bed. that's to much sugar
