It says add a scoop to your fav drink, now obvsiouly protein chocolate powder and water would be gross (not fav drink, but its what I drink) so I'm thinking milk.

So, is that how I make these things? Get a cup of milk, a scoop, and maybe a banana/peanut butter? Thanks.

Milk is superior to water in taste and "performance". I'd go with nonfat milk if your cutting.

Water allows for faster digestion which is why I use water for PWO but the taste isn't as good as milk.. Its pretty much all personal..

Also, I've got friends that mix it with Orange Juice (yuck!). Just try differant drinks, you'll find what you like best.

It would taste like crap with juice. I use skim milk myself, some prefer just water. Depending on what I"m after, I do add in extras for more cals usually natural peanut butter or bananas. Frozen banana seem to work well for me.

Milk for sure man, milk is the best.

just do a 16 ounce milk, 2 scoops whey, 2 tbsp peanut butter, its perfect and tastes like a liquid reeses peanut butter cup, and has like no sugar.

Use milk if you're just taking it to get calories in your body. Mmm, chocolate milk. Use water if you're at the gym or PWO, the protein will digest faster and therefore feed your muscles in less time. You get used to the taste with water, it really isin't bad at all, I actually look forward to it. :)

nitrean tastes good in water (unlike other proteins), but I usually use milk

Do blenders completely mix the powder and milk together? I used a spoon and no matter how hard I stirred, chunks still floated. Does simpily buying a blender solve this problem?

Yes, blenders are beautiful.

I'd always use milk for protein shakes. They give some nice add ons. Pack on some extra calories, casien/whey protein, fat, and good carbs. IMO nature made perfect.

A shaker (as someone else mentioned) usually does the trick for whey; anything with casein or MPI usually needs a blender, because the casein tends to clump.

Of course, you could always tough it up and chew the clumps. ;)

I already had to do that...its very gritty. Not the kind of chocolate you want all by itself lol. Milk FTW.

Nitrean in water is great, and blends easy with a spoon or fork. I just add a scoop to a glass, add water, stir and down it. Taste great, mixes great, works great. I don't like the extra cals from milk. I rather save them for real food while on a cut. Bulking then milk is great.

I usally go with the 1 cup milk and 3 scoops of GNC Chocolate Whey in the blender, since i got a lumpy batch the blenders the only way I can take it.
