What do you mix your DAA powder with?
I've got some Nutraplanet DAA that I am starting to use, and I was looking for good suggestions as to what to mix it with.
The directions say to take it "preferably" with the first meal of the day. I don't really eat a meal first thing in the morning, however. I start the day with a cup of coffee. A couple of hours later I then have an apple or banana, and some sort of protein (usually an MP Muscle Gel Shot).
For my first serving of DAA this morning, I mixed it with some cherry, sugar-free Kool-Aid, and it tasted fine. However, drinking a cup of coffee immediately after that did not seem right!
What about mixing the DAA with my coffee? Would there be any reason not to?
What do you guys mix your with?

First off, why don't you eat in the morning?
But to answer your question, I just throw a scoopful in my mouth and swig some water. It's no worse tane CEE.

If i use bulk(which is dislike) i toss my dose in to some juice and chug. Bulk powder tastes nasty so i will advise against putting it in to anything you sip on. Just take 1 dose and chug real quick.

I add it to my morning does of 5g bulk BCAAS and 1g LCLT and slam that sh!t like a champ. Of course I add some lemon lite

Powdered DAA tastes horrible and will overpower anything you mix it with. Like others have mentioned, I just toss it in my mouth and quickly chug some water.

I add it to my preworkout powder masks the taste.. juice if you drink grape or orange juice works.. Or I sometimes just man up and drink it with water. I have drank much worse tasting powders before...CEE comes to mind when I tried that years back...bleh.

Just mixed my DAA with 2 scoops lemon recover pro and LCLT. I think the DAA an LCLT gave an extra sweet kick to the lemon recover pro... But then again I don't think DaA tastes bad...

I can't taste it in OJ since it is tangy anyway. Tried it in coffee, but since I drink it black it was horrible. 3-4 times a week I do fasted cardio in the mornings and mix it with hemo-rage and BCAA powder. I'm currently laying off the daa after reading the side affects thread. It does seem to negatively affect my mental state.

Bcaas to an extent are ridiculous.... If you are fasting,not eating enough or cant have atleast 20 grams of carbs with your meals or any carbs with your meals ,then yes bcaas are essential. If you cant get a carb in wirh your post workout meal,then i would advise bcaas..And being I train ALL NATURAL i have never once had to use them ,eat my meals and eat often and always made gains,ALWAYS. Thats without uaing bcaas,ever.Originally Posted by Rhadam
So yeah bcaas imo are a supplement i wouldnt buy unless i was in a few situations like i listed above..Ive used bcaas maybe 3 times,waste of my money!

I mix my DAA in some Diet Mountain Dew and throw it back first thing in the morning. The lemon/lime masks the DAA taste pretty well.

On a certain other forum, i spend much of my time preaching about BCAA supplementation being worthless to most bodybuilders. There are very few situations in which i will actually recommend purchasing a BCAA supplement. Fasted cardio while in a caloric deficit, hypocaloric diet, multiple training sessions per day, and endurance training; that's basically it.
