recover faster than using either carbs or protein alone

  • New Flavor! There’s nothing better than some nostalgia with your recovery. We elevated a childhood favorite by putting the Skratch real fruit spin on strawberry milk. Our Strawberries + Cream Recovery Sport Drink Mix has a fresh, velvety burst of strawberries and complete milk protein for a delicious way to rapidly refuel, rehydrate and rebuild.

    The fastest way to recover when all your cookies have been spent.

    Recovery Sport Drink Mix is designed to rapidly refuel, rehydrate, and rebuild you when you’re completely empty after your longest and hardest workouts.

    It’s for those times when you’re totally cooked and you don’t have a personal chef to hand you a burrito or the time to make one yourself. It’s not designed for recovering after an easy stroll around the neighborhood or for getting swole. But, if you accidentally do get swole, make sure to post pictures on Instagram.

    Technically, our Recovery Sport Drink Mix is a 4 to 1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein, that’s designed to bring your blood sugar up fast. This causes the hormone insulin to spike, which is key to getting the sugar, electrolytes, fat, and protein in our Recovery Sport Drink Mix back into muscle fast. Basically, our Recovery Mix is really sweet milk* – like chocolate milk, but without a tongue-twisting list of excess ingredients and with a more optimized macronutrient profile for restoring muscle glycogen (aka, refueling).

    But, the real magic is that our Recovery Sport Drink Mix actually tastes great. So great, that you might want to drink it all the time. The problem is that while there’s a scientific rationale for the high amount of sugar we use, it’s not an amount that’s healthy to consume if you just sat on your butt all day. 

    Also, we know milk bends some people because they’re lactose intolerant, so we’ve added lactase to digest all the milk sugar.* We also know that after a super hard workout, your gut can be pretty fubarred, so we also added the probiotic bacillus coagulans 30 to make things better.

    And ya, it’s non-GMO, Kosher, vegetarian, and gluten free.

     *Vegan Chocolate flavor does not contain dairy.   

  • Chocolate: cane sugar, whole milk, nonfat milk, dextrose, cocoa powder, cocoa extract, lactase, salt, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (probiotic).

    Strawberries + Cream: cane sugar, whole milk, nonfat milk, strawberry juice powder, dextrose, vanilla extract, lactase, salt, citric acid, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (probiotic).

    Horchata: cane sugar, whole milk, nonfat milk, rice flour, dextrose, vanilla extract, cinnamon, lactase, salt, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (probiotic).

    +Probiotic BC30: 1 billion active cultures per serving. BC30 supports an overall healthy digestive system, healthy immune system, and enhances protein utilization. Not all probiotic strains are the same - BC30 delivers live cells 10 times more effectively than common probiotic yogurts.

    Allergens: Contains milk from rBGH/rBST free cows.*

    *No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST treated cows.

    Vegan Chocolate: cane sugar, dextrose, pea protein, medium chain triglycerides (derived from coconut), cocoa powder, rice protein, cocoa extract, gum acacia, salt, vanilla extract, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 (probiotic)

  • To prepare: simply add one serving (2 scoops or one packet) to 12 fl oz of water and shake (don't stir).

  • Our Recovery Mix is intended for use immediately after exercise, especially when that bout of exercise leaves you feeling hungry, when you don't have a meal made from scratch readily available, and when you want to fast track the recovery process.

    Because our Recovery Mix is a whole food product made with only real natural ingredients, you can also use it when your metabolism is on the fast track and when you're so hungry that you're being a menace to yourself and others.

Mmmm Sooo good

Kids and I use this after an intense workout. My kids love it and take this after a hard day of training of Jiu Jitsu. I use it after a cycling session. Chocolate is our favorite flavor.

Recovery Mix

I use the recovery mix often, and it is something easy to sip down that also helps me recover, so I am happy with my experience.

The best flavor, taste and consistency protein shake ever!

Let's start by saying that this is by far the best, most delicious recovery drink I have ever had. Taste, consistency, flavor, smoothness, everything is just perfect. The only thing I would suggest changing is lowering the amount of sugar this drink has, or making it Zero sugar if possible. 44% of the daily is far too much!


Love the flavors

So solid in every respect.

This product brought me to Skratch in the first place. And although I've become a fan of other products, this is the one that keeps me coming back. My workouts are oftentimes modest and other times pretty big. I'll save Recovery drink mix for the harder, longer efforts (including bringing it on multi-day outings) and it pretty much always helps stabilize my outlook, eases the rough spots, and makes getting after follow up efforts that much easier. Chocolate and Horchata are both excellent flavors and mix easily ....lots discipline is required to drink slowly and enjoy.

Great taste & recovery!

Strawberry/Cream- tastes like a strawberry shake, mixes well with a shaker, not chalky like some other recovery powders. I've used it after long runs and races, it refuels quickly without upsetting my stomach.

So delicious!

Wow! This stuff is delicious. I look forward to drinking it post run. The horchata and strawberry are amazing.

Wow, Great Taste Horchata!

Great recovery drink. In a drink bottle/shaker I measure 8 oz of water, add the 2 scoops of the powder, then 4/5 cubes of ice. Shakeshakshake....great consistency, not heavy in the tummy.

Love the chocolate!

I regularly drink the chocolate recovery. I have tried the vegan chocolate also. It doesn’t mix quite as well, slightly chalky but definitely tolerable if you want the vegan version.

So good

I have this drink after a big race. Always helps me feel better fast n
