any body have a good recipe for a budget night time formula that will is at least decent tasting?
The night time formula that I've been ordering from Protein customizer for over 8 months is:
- 62% Milk Protein Isolate
- Chocolate Flavoring
That comes out to $7.30 a pound before shipping. I like the Milk Protein Isolate because it is approximately 80% and 20% Whey Protein Isolate. Basically, I'm getting 50% Micellar Casein and 50% Whey Protein Isolate and saving $2.30 per pound. Taste is subjective, but I like it and look forward to it.
Also, compare this to Molecular Nutrition's Sustained Release protein over at bb.com which is $16.50 per pound before shipping.
I use a blend of:Originally Posted by primal1
30% Milk Isolate
25 Whey Concentrate
10% soy isolate
10% egg white
Its a big mix, and probably unnecessary include that many different kinds, but as the soy, egg and whey concetrate are very cheap, and the other 2 are reasonable...it works out to about 5 or 6 dollars a pound with chocolate flavor. I buy in bulk so I dont really fret about having them mix so many different kinds.
Good suggestion. Of course you could substitute the whey isolate for whey concentrate and save a little more.Originally Posted by tatortodd
thanks for the suggestions guys.
70/30 MPI/Egg here.
I go with 100 percent milk isolate, chocolate, which is thick and chalky unless you add a little more water. Also, make 3 shakes ahead of time, the longer you let the milk isolate sit in the water the smoother it is, very cheap and nightime protein source.
I'd been using my night time blend for over 7 months and had no idea how much the milk isolate thickened up until I got interrupted with a phone call after blending but before drinking. It wasn't as thick as the national brand shakes with all of the gums (guar, xantham, etc.) but the difference in thickness makes for some nice variety.
