The Recovery Booster DIY Sports drink : Recommended by The Bowen Clinic Nelson

Taking in a combination of carbs and protein after exercise increases muscle building hormones. You want a drink with a 2:1 ratio of carbs to protein. This will rehydrate you, restocks your muscle glycogen stores and helps to repair micro tears in muscular tissue. ( who would think chocolate milk hits the right ratio) !!!

Recipe :

  • 50ml low-fat yoghurt
  • 50ml skimmed milk
  • 2tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 banana
  • pinch of himilayan salt
  • 1 tsp honey

Blend all the ingredients together. This recipe will give you approx 15g of protein and 35g of carbs. Maks sure you sink it in the window of opportunity. within 30 mins of exercising, muscles will absorb amino acids from protein and carbs more readily straight after exercise.
