Maybe a very stupid question....

But will the protein content of a protein shake be ok if mixed/chilled the night before...

I.E. I mix about 5 scoops of protein (550 cal / 110 pro) in a blender with water the night before... fill 2 of my 16oz empty water bottles to take to work as inbetween snacks the next day.... will doing this the night before hurt the quality of the protein in anyway?

I sometimes do that. I have a shaker/container which i make up shakes and MRP shakes in. If i do it the night before i chill it in the fridge - nice and cold when i drink it. Mmmmmmm....

Ya.... same here... they do taste a wee bit better when chilled.....

So it doesn't hurt the quality then to make em up the night before?

I guess the only reason I kinda thought that, was I remembered all the debats about Creatines stability in water, and got to thinking, their might be similiar thinking to protein powders stability in water as well.... wasn't sure...

Thx for the reply though....

(I go so far as to throw a few ice cubes in the blender so I have like a Chocolate Slushy) :)

I do the ice thing too. Nothing is better than Budiak's Iced Protein on a frigid San Francisco evening.
