  • yvettie 'This will NEVER help your recovery post-workout. What you need after a workout is PROTEIN. This is what feeds your muscles. If you dont feed them, they will slowly consume themselves. Look at all the post-workout recovery drinks out there (something like PhD Recovery) they will be high in PROTEIN. Or you can just have some egg whites or chicken - will work well too. Filling yourself up with sugar wont help one little bit. '

  • Kirstie_McIntosh '@yvettie - thanks for your comment and the title may indeed be a little misleading. The fact that recovery is used indicates maybe a more intense workout, that would be best followed by a protein rich drink or meal. Therefore this recipe should be regarded more as a refreshing tonic rather than a recovery drink supplemented with protein. '
