It hydrates, provides electrolytes, leucine, casein and whey protein
and an optimal carb-to-protein
ratio of 4:1. It tastes good and doesn't cost as much as commercial products. Try 16 ounces of chocolate milk post-exercise. A 16-oz serving of low-fat (2%) chocolate milk has 64 g carbs, 16 g protein and 360 calories. If you’re a vegan, flavored pea protein, brown rice protein, or soy protein can be a substitution for chocolate milk. I don't recommend soy.
