    Get the regular monohydrate. Don't waste your money on the more expensive versions. Take it with grape juice or gatorade, not with orange or any citrus juices. And yes, you can add it to your shake.

    RE: creatine

    gymtime is right.
    Your better off with plain creatine monohydrate. Products like Cell-Tech and Phosphagen HP your wasting money for the sugar that's in the products and for all the adds in the mags. Yes you can dump the creatine in your shake, this is a good way to make loading easier. The only time you need creatine with (simple) carbs is for post workout replenishment. I don't know what shake you use but what I do for a post work out shake is 2 scoops of Isopure van. or cho. and 6 tbsp of Hersheys chocolate syrup in 2cups of water, tastes like real chocolate milk.

    50grams fast acting protein
    75grams simple carbs
    0grams of fat
    10grams of creatine monohydrate

    asone....

    I would ALWAYS suggest taking creatine with around 75-100g of simple sugars.. That has ALWAYS worked for me.
