Monster Milk RTD

Monster Milk RTD

Monster Milk RTD

Cytosport’s latest edition to the Monster line… Monster Milk RTD is finally live! As of June 11th, 2009, Cytosport ran their first batches of this high quality, high content protein aimed at the bodybuilder who wants it all, in a single RTD container.


Each bottle is 2.5 servings!  This is ideal for 50% 1hr before a workout and 1hr after.
But keep in mind.. this is TWO and a HALF servings.

Monster Milk RTD Flavors:

  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • … more?

Monster Milk RTD Supplement Facts: (Photo of Supplement Label)

At 310-350 calories and 50g of protein per bottle, this  a pre-workout and post-workout nutritional supplement that covers all the bases.  It’s not carb loaded, but you will get 18g per bottle.  At 45g of high quality protein (multi-source whey and casein blends) the natural bodybuilder is going to be quite anabolic pre and post workout.  Which is exactly what you want.

Of course you’ll get plenty of aminos and a dose of creatine.

9g of lean lipids coming from MCT’s, sunflower oil and canola oils.

5g of fiber is typical of functional foods.  Adding fiber is a good thing.  And at 5g it’s enough to make a difference but not so much as to cause a problem.  Those of use who eat our servings of starchy carbs (fruits and vegetables) are probably covered but 5g may be just enough to kick somebody to the daily allowance.  Not a bad thing in any case.

Introducing the Monster Family

Monster Amino | Monster Maize | Monster Pump

Monster Amino | Monster Maize | Monster Pump

In 2009, Cytosport released a new line of products called “Monster.”  Their intent was to cater to the high end bodybuilder who wanted the best quality stuff.  The first born was Monster Mass.

Mid-2009, Cytosport has done it again with 3 new family members!


Monster Amino: 5000mg BCAA Goodness!

Monster Amino by Cytosport

Let’s not get too technical as I’ve not done a full taste test yet but here’s what the label claims:

  • L-Lsoleucine 1.25g
  • L-Leucine 2.5g
  • L-Valine 1.25g

Sure there’s some calories upwards of 120 but less than 1g of sugar.

Monster Pump: 17g + Cellular Volumizing Complex

This is obviously a pre-workout formula.

Monster Maize: 40g of Complex Carbs

Is this the next super carb?  If you read Will Brink’s summary about Waxy Maize it may give you some insight.  However, what I can say about Cytosport is they deliver top quality products and if the content isn’t up to par, a few customer calls usually get things moving in the right direction.

And there you have it.. without a taste test yet.  Without any photos of the actual labels.. these are the new line of Monster products code named…

Monster Maize

Combined with Monster Mass,  you technically have the full line of pre/during/post workout nutrition covered to the hilt.  Yes, there’s a nice diagram on the back of when exactly to take the products and in which order.  Something that I’ve found lacking with other lines unless you scoure the website.

From the Marc David Rumor Mill: Monster Milk!

Rumor has it that Cytosport is going to release a higher in protein for the hardcore bodybuilder.

But if it’s anything like Muscle Milk, it’s going to taste great.
