This shake is actually great, i improvised on most of my amounts but basically the same. I added the ice and milk only by preference because I enjoy the cold shakes. It also makes it a little more drinkable than so thick

I seriously dislike this shake, following the above recipe to the gram it was too thick to be considered a shake. It's not something that I would look forward to upon waking up.

is using muscletech- nitro-tech the same as using the other protein powders?

I would think that it would be the same, unless the extra ingredients in the nitro-tech change something. Try it out, what's the worst that can happen?

How much dietary fiber does this bad boy have? Looks good, I may have to try it after I redeploy. As far as the ice thing goes, I myself would not add ice cubes, but that is purely my own preference. I like my food to be a little warm from time to time. And room temperature shakes, I have found, are easier to down in one shot.

could you switch the ice cold water for ice cubes?

You want to add the water. If you use ice cubes there would be no liquid to blend the ingredients, unless you added milk

I'd recommend both. I've tried this and found that the blender really heats up the shake, so ice cubes will cool it down. 2 or 3 should do it.
