    Milk is full of sugar. Granted lactose sugars are lower GI than say table sugar, still, i would avoid it. Especially when mixing it with all the fat in the PB... A greally great alternative to milk in shakes is unsweetened vanilla almond milk...

    I always use water. Milk, maybe once in a blue moon just to see how a certain flavor tastes with it. Water is always the better choice though.

    Since you're trying to slim down, use water. While I'm dieting, I only use water but while bulking, I use skim milk. The extra calories does a body good.

    Use half milk and half water, it's a good compromise.

    Water although protein shakes certainly taste better with milk. If you were bulking it might be close. You aren't...it has to be water.

    Water only. Finding a protein that tastes good in water helps. Banana myofusion in water is simply delicious.

    Always water for me. No need for the extra calories, and I found that the fats in milk make protein powders less soluable. Plus I really dont like the idea of drinking some white fluid that come out of a giant fleshy sack attached to the bottom of some four legged black and white beast haha!

    definitely go water, it also means that its more convenient and can have it whenever, if you cant handle it get some some skim milk powder that is low in sugar, that way you can adjust the strength to suit and get the perfect calories. (also tastes like normal milk)

    as for the penut butter it is very high in calories although most is from good fats that the body needs even when dieting. decide were your getting your other fats fromand you may find that adding penut butter may be beneficial to your diet (make sure its natural PB, no added suger).

    i add penut butter to my diet because it suppresses hunger, but that dosent seem to be a problem for you.

    good luck.

    Real good. Ive tried chocolate almond milk, it's thick but good and also chocolate protein powder with coconut milk also money! Lately I've been using ON cake batter with hot water and cinnamon also good haha. Apparently cinnamon helps the body with assimilating carbohydrates and balancing insulin levels. I guess I've done a bit of experimentation. Oh one more I like on a carb load is a half cups of quick oats uncooked to 2 scoops of protein mixed with h2o. I let it sit for a few mins the oats get soft and you can drink it down. It's really the only way I can do oats. I hate eating them...the texture sucks.

    I just recently started using coconut milk (unsweetened) for my shakes, and the taste is fantastic...so much better than almond milk...If you can get your hands on some of that (Silk has an unsweetened version at A&P) I would definitely try it.

    Milk all the way, protein powder in water taste nasty and weird as heck. Bulking, non-bulking, milk for me. Good cals, good fats, good carbs, and awsome taste lol. I only drink whole milk or chocolate milk, chocolate milk with truscience cocoa protein is out of this world. I also always throw in half a frozen banana and two spoons of skippy's natural honey pb.

    ^ This. Almond Milk, unsweetened. I will also pour in 4 - 8 oz of liquid eggwhites. May sound gross, but that damn almond milk / egg white / pro powder combo actually tastes pretty good. No sugar and for most people, it digests a whole lot better. No gas mang.

    I might be in the minority here but I think that itís a personal preference. I am an endomorph (larger body type) and I prefer to use low-fat milk in my late night shakes, particularly when I am running low on casein (which milk is an excellent source of). When youíre cutting, dieting, or what have you, your body could possibly be lacking in some nutrients. Milk is one of the most nutrient dense sources of food out there and can help to curtail any dietary induced nutrient deficiencies (obviously within reason). The sugar in milk, lactase, is also different than your garden variety sugar, and as such possesses a lower GI index rating, and as such isn't as bad for you. Just my thoughts.

    Dude, if your cutting you dont want milk. Period. Its all lactose and disaccharide sugars which are menacing. I use water always, even in a bulk. Then again I just dont consume dairy.

    Water for me. I don't need those extra cals, not to mention I'm not a huge fan of cow juice. I will mix with chocolate almond milk every once in a while if I'm feeling froggy...good stuff.

    That's what I use, almond milk has far less protein, but the rest of the shake makes up for it. You get the great taste of milk with nutritional intake closer to water.

    Coconut milk or almond milk tastes good. Majority of the time I use water. There's only a few stores that only carry the safe milk anyway (wholefoods, walmart etc) They only carry hormone free milk.
