Try a Better Chocolate Milk

19 May

About a year ago, a colleague introduced me to Fairlife 2% chocolate milk.  I’m a big fan (maybe too big) of chocolate, and I love chocolate milk.  I even mix my chocolate whey protein powder with chocolate milk.

An 8 ounce serving of Fairlife 2% chocolate milk contains 13 grams of high-quality, whey protein – 50% more than ordinary chocolate milk.

Compared to ordinary chocolate milk, Fairlife 2% chocolate milk also boasts 30% more calcium; half the sugars – only 12 grams per 8 ounce serving; 9 essential nutrients, including vitamins A & D; and it’s lactose free.

There’s lots of research to support chocolate milk as, perhaps, the ideal post-workout recovery drink, because it contains the right mix of carbs and protein scientifically shown to help refuel muscles.

The purpose of post-workout recovery is to replenish glycogen (sugar) stores in the muscle and start the process of protein synthesis (muscle rebuilding) so that your body is ready for the next workout.
