Made their shake in bulk, store in the refrigerator and just shake and pour when needed?

I was always under the assumption the protein starts creating bacteria as soon as it gets wet, so I have never tried it. I guess the refrigeration would cut down on bacteria growth. I do know the ingredients in a protein shake will start to separate after a while, so you will probably have to reshake/blend when you pull it out the next day.

Nope. Have a few of the original "Blender Bottles," the shaker with the spherical steel wisk inside. I line up however many of those I want to use that, or the next, day, and put whatever powder(s) in them until ready to use. When ready, I add whatever cold liquid I want to however many I want, shake n' go. Settling is not a problem if it takes a while to drink ... I just shake again until it's empty. That wisk makes a difference.

Kitchen-to-garage-gym-in-60 seconds for intra-workout shakes ... faster for post-workout back in the house.

I'll probably Google it. I'm sure somebody's asked this question before. I'm sure food expert scientist person may of addressed this

Some say 24 hrs others say 24 to 48

Can You Make Protein Shakes in Advance?​


Yes, you can make protein shakes in advance. In fact, it can be a time-saving strategy for busy mornings or post-workout recovery. However, there are some things to keep in mind:


  • Use airtight containers to prevent spoilage and contamination.
  • Store in the refrigerator for no more than 24-48 hours.
  • Shake well before drinking to ensure the ingredients are well-mixed.

Just read a few scholarly articles and as long as it is whey and you store it in the fridge you should be good for 24-48 hours. If it has any vegetable proteins, it needs to be consumed right away.

I usually look at scholarly studies first, none popped up like they usually do. Could be the key words I'm using. I'll try different ones

That is what I had to do, because I ran into the same.

Yes, I’ve been doing this for awhile now. It’s fine if refrigerated and consumed the next day plus it does save time too.

I have pre blended but always thought it tasted like shit when it wasn’t fresh. If I pre blended I would have to “reblend” anyways so I just make em fresh when I do make em.

Out of curiosity have gains improved since you have been pre making? A claim was made "This will allow the proteins to break down and be more easily absorbed by your body." I realize this is a vague claim because at this point we have no data to compare as well as what does easy truly mean how do we quantify that. How much more beneficial is it and beneficial how,compared to what? Now I'm babbling to myself again.
