How to Make Muscle Milk Taste Better

Muscle Milk is a great way to increase your protein intake. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always taste the best. This protein powder comes in multiple flavors, but it’s still not the tastiest supplement in everyone’s opinion. If you’re one of those people who’s looking to have more Muscle Milk in your diet, but don’t like the way it tastes, look no further. Here’s how to make Muscle Milk taste better.

How to Make Muscle Milk Taste Better

 

Put It in a Smoothie

Anytime you have a powder you don’t like the taste of, put it in a smoothie. A smoothie is the ultimate way to mask the flavor of a powder that you don’t want to taste but still want to consume.

Smoothies are easy to make and are the perfect go-with for a protein powder because they include many healthy ingredients. Start with a base of fruit and vegetables and add in some plant-based milk, and add all the powders you want.

 

Add a Flavor

Muscle Milk comes in various flavors already, including vanilla and chocolate, but that doesn’t mean you have to just stick to the premade flavors. If you don’t like the flavor of Muscle Milk, or you just want it to be a little bit sweeter or more complex, add some flavor of your own.

There are other powder supplements that are flavored that could enhance the flavor of Muscle Milk, and there are also tons of spices that’ll do the same. A sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, or even cayenne pepper (If you like things spicy) will be a welcome addition to your protein drink.

You can also use extracts like almond or vanilla to add some extra flavor to the Muscle Milk, but you may want to add those in once the protein powder has been stirred with water.

 

Mix Flavors

Don’t be afraid to mix flavors. The same ingredients – aside from those used for flavoring – will be in every Muscle Milk container, so get creative. If you want a chocolate and vanilla swirl, mix those two flavors.

From there, you can continue adding flavors. You can sprinkle in cinnamon or nutmeg or add a droplet of vanilla or almond extract. No matter how you do it, adding or mixing flavors will make Muscle Milk all the better.

 

Add It to Coffee

Another secret to making powders taste better is adding them to coffee. Now, we don’t suggest you brew your coffee with Muscle Milk as you might with spices, but you can easily add it to your coffee once it’s brewed.

Or, instead of using a powdered creamer, use Muscle Milk as your creamer. It’ll enhance the flavor of your coffee while also masking its flavor, making for a much easier and cozier way to down your Muscle Milk. This is a great tip if you like to work out in the morning because you can combine your daily cup of Joe with your protein supplements.

 

Add It to Hot Chocolate

The same way you would with coffee, add your Muscle Milk to hot chocolate. If you use powdered hot chocolate mix, simply put your scoop of protein powder along with your hot chocolate mix. Not only will this mask the flavor of Muscle Milk, but it’ll also give you a larger amount of hot chocolate.

 

Put It in Baked Goods

Muscle Milk is a powder, and you can add just about any powder to baked goods. This may require some trial and error if you are coming up with a recipe on your own, but there are tons of recipes available for people who want to add some protein powder to their sweet treats.

Whether you put them in brownies, cookies, or something no-bake, like a protein ball, you’ll get all the benefits of Muscle Milk without having to taste it. This is especially great if you already feel like you consume a lot of liquids throughout the day and don’t want to add another one to your diet.

 

Add It to Pancakes

Have you ever had protein pancakes? If you’re a protein fanatic, you probably have, but if you’re new to Muscle Milk, you’ve got to try them.

The best part about protein pancakes? They taste just the same as a regular pancake. The difference is they’re packed with protein and are great to have in the morning. You can follow someone else’s recipe or just make your own by mixing in the protein powder with your favorite pancake mix. It’s about as simple as it gets.

These are also easy to meal prep and make for a super delicious breakfast to have on the go. Make a batch of Muscle Milk pancakes on Sunday, and you’ll be prepared with a healthy morning meal for the rest of the week.

 

Dip Cookies

If all else fails and you only have the option of making Muscle Milk with water as directed, improve the taste a bit by dipping cookies in your drink. It may not be as satisfying as dipping an Oreo in a glass of whole milk, but it’ll be a tasty way to get your protein in for the day.
