Hi Spartigus,
I take protein shakes in routine and I used bananas with 1 liter of milk to make protein shake.
I will give it a try as I love milk and chocolate. Thanks for the share.

Chocolate milk is very good drink and it is a quick insane energy and and many athletics use to drink it as an energy drink. It is really nice.

Not a fan. I tend to avoid sugar like the plague. As far as PWO recovery I find it hard to believe that milk and choclate can be superior to milk and a couple scoops of whey protein.
Not saying choclate milk won't work or that someone is doing something wrong or anything like that.
I'm just saying that in my simple mind I see Milk and whey as being superior to milk and choclate for PWO nutrition.

True, but a litre of milk, any milk, still = 30 grams of protein. So PWO it's a pretty good choice. Not ideal, perhaps, but still very good IMO.

Yeah, I understand that. I thought I made it pretty clear that I'm not trying to claim that milk and choclate PWO is bad or wrong or ineffective or anything of that nature. Just that I prefer whey and milk.
Just giving my opinion on the matter.

Evidently the "magic" ratio is 4:1 simple carbs to proteins, and low-fat chocolate milk is just about perfect. I've used it in the past with fine results, but these days I use real foods PWO as mush as possible, or if I can't get real foods I get some normal milk. I still try to stick to the 4:1 ratio though. Subway is just about perfect.

That's 4 parts carbs to 1 part protein?
I am not sure that would work for me, and a lot of people would dispute that ratio for any trainer whose goal is muscle development or weight control.
...if I'm reading you correctly?

I drink 1 liter of 1% or 2% Chocolate Milk after workouts. The nutrient profile is perfect. The breakdown of fast and slow digesting proteins combined with the simple carbs and fat content are just what your body needs. Definitely recommend. And is so much cheaper than buying RTD's or even using a high quality whey. Good luck!
