Muscle Milk Naturals gives you the same high quality protein as Genuine Muscle Milk but contains only natural flavors and sweeteners. We use a combination of cane sugar, fructose, stevia and monk fruit that makes for a delicious, natural taste - whether you drink it as a shake or add it to pancakes, smoothies or other recipes.
Uses: Pre-workout, post-workout, meal replacement or as a protein-rich snack
PRECISION PROTEIN BLEND We’ve developed a unique mix of complete multi-source proteins. These include calcium sodium caseinate, milk protein isolate, whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein concentrate, lactoferrin, L-glutamine and taurine, which provide amino acids - the building blocks of muscle tissue. Translation? High quality protein to help you recover from exercise and build muscle.
LEAN LIPIDS™ The Lean Lipids in Muscle Milk Naturals come from sunflower oil, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), and canola oil. Long-chain polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from sunflower and canola oils provide essential fatty acids. The body can use MCTs for muscle energy. What does this mean? MCTs are less likely to be stored as fat than typical fats. (See nutrition facts for total and saturated fat content.)
10 GRAMS OF CARBOHYDRATES Our carbohydrate blend provides glucose and fructose. Glucose, from cane sugar and maltodextrin and fructose from cane sugar and crystalline fructose can be used by the body for energy and to make glycogen, the body’s quickly available energy bank. What are we trying to say? Muscle Milk Naturals provides carbohydrates in different forms with unique functions.
Q: WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DRINK MUSCLE MILK? A: Muscle Milk should be consumed as directed on the label. Muscle Milk can be consumed before workouts, after workouts, first thing in the morning or prior to bedtime. In addition, Muscle Milk can be used as a meal replacement when you are on the go or as a high protein snack during the day. But, keep in mind that individual nutritional requirements vary depending on gender, body weight, level of activity and exercise/training intensity and duration. So, it is best to use Muscle Milk as part of a well-balanced diet that includes whole foods and other protein sources. We do not recommend Muscle Milk be used as your sole source of nutrition.
Q: WHO CAN DRINK MUSCLE MILK? A: The short answer is Muscle Milk can be used by almost anyone that is not allergic to dairy proteins. Plenty of athletes drink Muscle Milk because they may have increased protein requirements, but it is fine for anyone that wants to supplement their protein intake. The proteins in Muscle Milk may be especially helpful when you are:
starting a new exercise program and trying to build muscle
increasing the intensity of your work-outs
a vegetarian (that consumes dairy) and does not get enough protein from dietary sources

A: All flavors of Muscle Milk, Muscle Milk Light and Muscle Milk Collegiate ready-to-drink products are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union and this is indicated by the symbol on the label. Currently, CytoSport powder drink mixes and bars are not Kosher certified.
Q: WHICH CYTOSPORT PRODUCTS ARE LACTOSE FREE? A: All flavors of Muscle Milk, Muscle Milk Light and Muscle Milk Collegiate ready-to-drink products are lactose free. Muscle Milk, Muscle Milk Gainer, Muscle Milk Light and Muscle Milk Naturals powders are also lactose free.
"I'm just going to jump straight to the point, along with your regular workouts, I strongly recommend this product" - Daris McInnis
I've been reading quite a few reviews on Muscle Milk just to get a feel if others shared my experiences with it. What I find is just about half the reviews talk about nothing more than how great it tastes. That would be fine if the product were a very expensive milkshake, but it's a muscle enhancing product and there are little details in these reviews about whether or not it worked for them. So let me share. Yes, it did give me results. - Douglas G. Lally

Mix all ingredients, roll into small balls and refrigerate before serving
Red Velvet Cake Bites/Bars
¼ cup Muscle Milk Naturals Vanilla Powder
2 tbsp coconut flour, separated
2 tbsp almond flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup almond milk
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Add all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Add almond milk by 1/4 cupful and mix. Add the rest of the milk in the bowl and mix still. If the batter is still too liquidy add the other tbsp of coconut flour. The batter is supposed to be thick enough to mold into shapes.
Take a little bit of the thick batter and shape into balls. Once you’ve formed them into balls, press and mold them into the shape of bars and put on parchment paper. Put the bars in the fridge for a couple of minutes to harden.
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or on the stove and once it’s melted dip the bars into the chocolate to coat.
Scoop the rest of the melted chocolate onto the bars with a spoon. Put in the fridge for at least an hour. Remove from fridge and enjoy!
1 scoop Vanilla Naturals Muscle Milk powder
1 cup almond milk
2 - 3 tsp spirulina
1 small banana
1/4 tsp almond extract (to taste)
Combine all ingredients in a blender or smoothie maker. Enjoy!
Tip: Make your almond milk whip using an espresso foamer/frother... or take it back "old skool" style with a wisk and you'll inadvertantly add a mini-workout to your smoothie. Cheers!
