Protein Problem
 
Guys i have recently purchased the nitro-tech exotic tropical fruit protein drink. Problem is im lactose and tolerant so i cant mix it with milk. Anyone have any secret remidies?

Why not just mix it with water? Protein doesn't have to be taken with milk, it just makes it taste better and adds extra calories.

true but it is pretty sick,just seeing if anyone had any tricks!

Honestly, its going to be pretty hard since protein is usually taken with milk or water. If you really can't stand the taste of it in water you could try taking it in some sort of fruit juice. There are some recipes in our recipe forum.

Honestly, you may just want to get a protein that tastes better in water once your done with this tub. Some proteins are awful in water, but ON's 100% Whey is pretty good in just water and gets even better if you add in some dextrose for post workout carbs. Nitro-tech is also a little overpriced imho.

I'm also lactose intolerant and I add in two tbls. of heavy whipping cream to my drinks. It makes it thicker and adds in fat calories as well. It's also zero carbs, too. Just don't add it to your postworkout shakes as fat will slow down absorption of glucose and protein.

I've used lactaid pills and I can honestly say they work. I don't get any of the bad reactions with cheese, cottage cheese, ice cream, but milk tears my stomack up somethin fierce!

Why not buy some soy milk or lactose free milk? I drink Cee in water, I bet it doesnt taste that bad.

I just do water. I can ingest almost anything. I've been drinking these things for over 20 years and the stuff today is like candy compared to the old school cardboard. You youngens are just spoiled. Chug it down. You'll get used to it.

If blending use water and a banannannanna or two.
