Chocolate milk is becoming more and more popular as the go-to post-race recovery beverage. Not only is it a delicious option, but it is also cheap and readily available, compared to more expensive energy drinks such as Gatorade or Endurox.
New research has confirmed that chocolate milk is an optimal recovery beverage after a workout because it is easily digested, contains the right amount of carbs to protein, helps replace fluids and electrolytes lost during exercise, and offers just enough indulgence.
Go ahead, indulge! Got (chocolate) milk?
