Perfect Recovery Drinks

After an intensive training session, appetites can often be suppressed at first, however, this is also the most important time to take in nutrients to help with the recovery process. Go for recovery drinks.

Having a drink may be the best solution as not only will it start replacing carbohydrate and protein, it will also help your body to rehydrate. The basic rule of thumb for a recovery drink is that it should be made in a 3:1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein. The simplest way to achieve this is to use milk as a base.

A lot of the recovery drinks and protein shakes on the market are in fact just glorified milk. Why not save some money and make your own more delicious versions such as smoothies or a caffeine drink?

To make the best latte, all you need is 1 shot of strong espresso topped with 250ml/9fl oz/1 cup warm milk.
