I had figured this out once but can't find the thread I posted it on:
Using 1 cup skim milk and a scoop of Designer Whey protein powder=
Compared to Myoplex, this 'protein milk' concoction is missing some vitamins and minerals, but I still drink it all the time to save money. I like experimenting with different flavors, and sometimes adding some cold coffee for a special coffee drink taste!
oh, as far as if it's a complete meal? Milk has more carbs than protein, so if you increased the milk to 2 cups, you would have a better ratio. I tend to eat too many carbs, so i myself stick to one cup milk, hoping it balances out that way.
What if i were to mix the powder into 2 cups of 1% MILK? Would that equal a complete meal portion (protein and carb?) Thanks !
you'd be fine adding some frozen berries. i wouldn't go w/ a complete extra portion of carbohydrates but berries are on the lower end of the carbohydrate scale so half a portion of these would be fine and would still cause this drink to lean more towards protein :)
I compared the nutritional info for 1% vs. skim. The only difference is 20 more calories per cup and a few more fat grams. Protein and carbs are the same.
