A recent study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism notes that chocolate milk can be an optimal post-exercise recovery aid.
Chocolate milk not only provides an ideal combination of carbohydrates and protein—which your body craves post workout—but it has a high water content, which helps prevent dehydration from fluids lost during exercise. Paired with a serving of crunchy and satiating almonds, you'll almost feel as if you're eating dessert (minus the guilt).
