What You Should Know
CytoSports is the manufacturer of Monster Milk. Monster Milk is the big brother of Muscle Milk and Muscle Milk Light. Unlike its little cousins, Monster Milk is most often used in powder form. The powder packs 50 grams of protein per serving and a whopping 350 calories. One serving is equal to two-scoops and should be taken in place of the bodybuilders regular protein shake or weight gainer. The total calories in Monster Milk are far too high for the average dieter.

Taking a close look at Monster Milk, there is nothing bad to say about the product for the right group of people. Bodybuilders need lots of protein and calories to keep muscles growing and energy levels high during workouts that last hours. Dieters do not have that calorie need or do they need to consume 50 grams of protein in one shake, in most cases.
We did find it interesting that one scoop of Monster Milk contains 175 calories and 25 grams of protein, making it more effective than Muscle Milk Light which has 170 calories and only 20 grams of protein. Dieters could use Monster Milk as a meal replacement if the serving size was reduced to just one scoop as opposed to more than one scoop.
CytoSports tends to be a company that focuses on fitness and bodybuilding with few products promoting weight loss or fat burn. The idea of Monster Milk, like so many other protein products, is to increase protein intake so muscles have the fuel they need. Dieters do not have a huge need for excessive amounts of protein.
- There are 50 grams of protein per serving.
- Lower fat content.
- Includes 5 grams of fiber per serving.
- Healthy vitamins and minerals included with the shake.
- Dieters do not need 50 grams of protein.
- There are 350 calories in one shake – too many for a dieter to just consume before hitting the gym.
- Not all dieters workout so a pre-workout shake is not needed.
- Creatine can cause water retention.
Monster Milk is not a product for everyone. Bodybuilders who want to supply calories and protein to muscles for massive growth may find a great use for Monster Milk; dieters not so much.
