    Glad to see your still consuming carbs post workout, some guys when cutting really think their protein shake is enough. This is a really good snippet explaining optimal carbohydrate consumption post-workout, while also providing a more realistic; however, just as effective approach

    The highest muscle glycogen synthesis rates have been reported when large amounts of carbohydrate (1.0Ė1.85 g/kg/h) are consumed immediately post-exercise and at 15.60 minute intervals thereafter, for up to 5 hours post-exercise. When carbohydrate ingestion is delayed by several hours, this may lead to ∼50% lower rates of muscle glycogen synthesis. The addition of certain amino acids and/ or proteins to a carbohydrate supplement can increase muscle glycogen synthesis rates, most probably because of an enhanced insulin response. However, when carbohydrate intake is high (≥1.2 g/kg/h) and provided at regular intervals, a further increase in insulin concentrations by additional supplementation of protein and/or amino acids does not further increase the rate of muscle glycogen synthesis. Thus, when carbohydrate intake is insufficient (<1.2 g/kg/h), the addition of certain amino acids and/or proteins may be beneficial for muscle glycogen synthesis. Furthermore, ingestion of insulinotropic protein and/or amino acid mixtures might stimulate post-exercise net muscle protein anabolism. Suggestions have been made that carbohydrate availability is the main limiting factor for glycogen synthesis. A large part of the ingested glucose that enters the bloodstream appears to be extracted by tissues other than the exercise muscle (i.e. liver, other muscle groups or fat tissue) and may therefore limit the amount of glucose available to maximise muscle glycogen synthesis rates. Furthermore, intestinal glucose absorption may also be a rate-limiting factor for muscle glycogen synthesis when large quantities (>1 g/min) of glucose are ingested following exercise-
    Jentjens, R. & Jeukendrup, A.E. Sports Med (2003) 33: 117.

    You're already doing the right thing consuming what your body needs, but I just put that there in case someone down the road sees it, that could benefit from it. But to answer your actual question, I personally find dextrose really easy on my stomach and practical to use. Its pretty common and I'm sure you've seen it before, but I have always found it easy mixing my protein directly with my milk and dextrose(pretty dam sweet though, that's for sure). Youll definitely get a quick secretion of insulin via the pancreas as well with dextrose. As always don't forget your low glycemic carbs for increasing fat oxidation.

    To be honest, I use Fairlife Chocolate Milk(2 Cups) with a scoop of hydrolyzed whey isolate and glucose polymers.
    Roughly- 48g protein(fast and moderate acting) and 80g of carbs(sugar) post workout. Works great even while cutting.

    A couple jolly ranchers or some type of simple sugar. I know your cutting so keep it minimal you don’t want a huge spike just enough to replace some lost glucose. I was having this same issue a couple years ago while I was on a strict cut and it helped tremendously.
