I'm not sure a sugary drink is your best post-workout snack...

But if it works for you, it's probably not the end of the world. Typically what your body needs replenished is water and electrolytes. So a better option might be coconut water.

I love drinking chocolate milk after a workout. It has a 4 carb to 1 protein ratio which is perfect for post workouts.

I use it when I run out of protein powder....or as a cheaper way to get some extra protein in after a workout.

I've heard that this was the ideal ratio of carbs & protein for an after workout snack. Try it for a few days and see how it goes.

I do not know about it being beneficial but I can tell you that I once drank a glass of chocolate milk right after a workout and within about 20 minutes the milk curdled in my stomach. You can guess what I was doing at the 21 minute mark.

Is this really beneficial to me? I would appreciate thoughts on this...

I have heard this (don't remember where) and have seen posters on the walls at my gym encouraging one to drink chocolate milk after a workout.

So... today I put 8 oz of 2% milk into my Vitamix... added a tbsp of raw cocoa and a pkg of Krisda (natural sugar) let the machine run for a few minutes to warm it up and poured myself a warm mug of chocolate milk. It was "delicious" and... I hope it really is benefiting me and not just a waste of my precious daily calories LOL
