Protein shake?

How big is the difference between using water or milk in a protein shake ? A lot of people say water..but I prefer milk..what is the best type of milk to use? I usually use 2% or fat free..

Re: Protein shake?

Shouldn't be a big difference, though if you're using it for calorie replacement after a workout you might want to pick something with carbs so you can get a good 75/25 carbs/protein balance. I use Bolthouse Farms juice.

Though if you want to save money a couple handfuls of almonds and a glass of orange juice is probably just as effective.

Re: Protein shake?

Do you like drinks to be a fluid or a semi-gelatinous blob that's as thick as pine tar with chunks of dirt in it?

I've never been really able to choke down a protein shake made with milk, too think and never can stir it enough to get all of the powder to completely dissolve into the milk.

Water is thinner so it produce a more liquid/drink-like consistency and the powder dissolves a lot better. Sure, the nutritional benefits are different from the loss of the milk but, I dunno, chase your protein drink with a glass of milk or something. Using water isn't really adding (or taking away) anything to the equation so NBD.
For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.

They don't work any less than equivalent amounts of the same nutrients from other cheaper sources.

Re: Protein shake?

It's generally a matter of taste. Milk makes a creamer shake however if you're counting macro's, milk adds calories.

Also depends on where you're at, if you're at work or the gym it may not be practical to have a jug of milk with you so water is the only other option.

Edit: Agreed though, I see your signature that you're a personal trainer. This is basic stuff.
