I’m all about recovery these days, so when I saw the new Clif Shot hot recovery drink mix in – hallelujah, please – chocolate flavor I grabbed it, ran home and used my roommates meth cooker to mix up a batch.
I was nervous because the name includes “Clif Shot” which is a separate product that tastes like crap. How do I know what crap tastes like? Long story. Anyway, this stuff tastes great, like a good hot chocolate mix. Made mostly from organic ingredients, presumably not including greasy grimy gopher guts, the recovery part is the six grams of protein plus electrolytes, etc.
It’s 140 calories of chocolate flavored hydration at the end of the day, and anything that serves up a little extra protein for muscle recovery is OK by me. Try mixing it up with soy milk for a little extra oomph. It would be nice if it was sold in bulk.
