Protein shake post work out

Ok so we know that not to mix your protein powder with milk because it takes a while to digest so best having a drink like that before bed.

Mix protein powder with water straight after a work out.

How about mixing your protein powder with a smoothie? This has no milk so would it be the same as water?

    To be honest, it really won't matter too much either way.
     
    Some people suggest chocolate milk post workout is fine, others suggest whey and a high GI carb, some suggest real food, while others suggest a protein blend with added BCAA's... It's all down to preference. 
     
    Just focus on getting quality nutrients in over the day and go from there.

    I think you may find some people using blends with casein in PWO so you get both fast & slow release over period of time expect there may be a few on here who use milk in there shake.

    Who is this 'we' of whom you speak?! I often mix mine with milk. I currently pour it over coco pops too for what it's worth.

    I thought there was a really good argument that milk DOES digest slowly and this can have an impact on the digestion of whey as well? Not sure where I heard it, but heard it a few times. Something about the casein getting priority over the whey when it comes to digestion.
     
    Does anyone have a link to any kind of research on this?

    It may be digested more slowly with milk, point is does that really make any real difference?

    Most of the time it just tastes so much better with milk.

    To be fair you're probably dead right.
     
    Absolutely tastes better with milk!

    is it fair to say that most people aren't too concerned with nutrient timing on MT?

    You will get mixed views on it to be honest.

    I think most people have come to realise that for the average gym goer nutrient timing is far less important than overall diet.

    personally, I believe in it but as the above alludes to, you probably don't need to be overly anal about it.
     
    we all know we need energy before a workout and we all know we need to replace the energy sources we burn after a workout. I see no issue in replacing the energy sources after a workout straight away, but maybe we don't need to be too concerned with finding the fastest possible absorbing nutrients.

    If you like milk.  Not a fan.
     
    Smoothies or juice still provide high GI carbs so are fine if that's what your after.  Juice tastes way too strong for my liking though, so prefer dex+malto.
