Peri-Workout Nutrition Question

Hey all,
I’ve decided to boost my calories around my workout. My procedure before was to take 1 scoop of Surge before and after my workout with 5 g of micronized creatine in the post-workout shake. My new strategy is to consume two scoops of Surge pre-workout and then chocolate milk + creatine for post workout. Does that look alright or is milk a crappy way to ingest creatine?
Thanks

Chocolate milk is better than nothing, but it’s a poor substitute for Surge.

Why not mix 3 scoops of Surge and have half before/during training and half afterward with creatine?
