Top 8 P90X Recovery Drink Alternatives

Everyone knows that the recovery drink is an important part of any p90x routine. P90x has shown to be a great program for those looking to get in shape, but it can also be tough on your body. The recovery drink is designed to replenish fluids and rebuild muscle after vigorous exercise like p90x. There are many products out there that offer similar benefits as the official recovery drinks from Beachbody, but they might not have all the same ingredients or even taste as good! In this blog post, we will provide you with 10 alternatives that may be able to help you recover from your workouts!

Here Are The Top 10 P90X Recovery Drink Alternatives

1. Chocolate milk 

2. Banana and peanut butter smoothie 

3. Orange juice with a handful of spinach leaves 

4. Strawberry banana smoothie 

5. Coconut water with lime, ginger, and honey mixed in 

6. Pineapple orange mango juice from Trader Joe’s (or your preferred grocery store) 

7. Watermelon cubes with lime juice and sea salt to taste (great on a hot day) 

8. Protein shake 

Chocolate milk

Chocolate milk was the first recovery drink that we tried and it is a favorite of many! Although this isn’t technically vegan, dairy-free chocolate soy milk can be substituted. Chocolate milk has calcium for bone-building purposes as well as beneficial vitamins like vitamin D to help you recover from your workouts more quickly. It also tastes great with just about anything too – while there are countless ways to prepare it, our favorite way is by mixing together equal parts water or almond milk (a plant-based beverage) and dark chocolate whey protein powder, adding in one tablespoon of raw honey, microwaving for 30 seconds on high power until all the liquid is hot before letting cool slightly. Pour over ice if desired and enjoy!

Here are a few more recovery drink recipes that we love!

Protein shake with added milk

-One banana, one cup of rice or almond milk, one scoop of vanilla protein powder, two teaspoons of chia seeds, and a pinch of cinnamon. Blend until smooth. If you want to avoid high sugar content in the fruit adds some honey after blending for sweetness. Adjust recipe proportions as desired based on taste preference and nutritional need such as adding less liquid if your goal is weight loss or higher fat intake. Or use water instead of dairy milk to make this vegan-friendly option which contains no cholesterol whatsoever!

Banana And Peanut Butter Smoothie

Nutrition shake with protein powder

– One banana, one cup of almond or rice milk (or water), two tablespoons peanut butter, half teaspoon honey. Blend until smooth. Adjust recipe proportions as desired based on taste preference and nutritional need such as adding less liquid if your goal is weight loss or higher fat intake. Or use water instead of dairy milk to make this vegan-friendly option which contains no cholesterol whatsoever!

Banana and peanut butter milkshake: A breakfast recovery drink for those with a sweet tooth in the morning time! Simply mix together a handful of oats with some skimmed cocoa powder, then combine it all in a blender with ice cubes, two bananas sliced up into chunks before freezing overnight plus three tablespoons of peanut butter. Add 100mls of low-fat milk, or for a vegan option, you can use water and some more cocoa powder to make up the difference in taste without any cholesterol!

Vanilla protein shake: If it’s lunchtime and you want something that feels like dessert, whip together one scoop vanilla whey protein isolate with 250 ml skimmed milk over ice cubes. For extra sweetness try adding half a banana too (or whichever fruit is your preference). Blend until smooth. This recovery drink will give you all of the carbs needed after an intense workout session but packs less sugar than many other recovery options such as sports drinks which often contain added fructose corn syrup or high-fructose corn syrup in order to sweeten them up!

Orange Juice With A Handful Of Spinach Leaves:

This is a good recovery drink option for vegetarians or those who don’t want the taste of egg protein shake in their recovery drink. Spinach contains amino acids that are important for muscle growth and repair, so this is an especially great choice if you’re recovering from a hard workout session or feeling under-energized post-workout. Blend two oranges with about five handfuls of spinach leaves (or whatever amount will fit into your blender) until smooth and enjoy!

A note on sugar content: The main source of carbohydrates in this recipe comes from oranges, which contain natural sugars such as fructose.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

A great recovery drink for vegetarians or those who don’t want the taste of egg protein shake in their recovery drink. Blend two oranges with about five handfuls of spinach leaves (or whatever amount will fit into your blender) until smooth and enjoy!

Strawberries are rich in antioxidants that help to alleviate muscle inflammation post-workout while also providing a good dose of potassium – an electrolyte lost through sweat during exercise sessions. Bananas provide both carbohydrate energy and plenty more potassium needed by muscles following strenuous activity.

Coconut Water With Lime, Ginger, And Honey Mixed In 

Coconut water is a fantastic recovery drink because it’s rich in electrolytes, which are nutrients that help replenish the fluids and minerals lost during intense workouts. Coconut water also contains potassium, sodium, and magnesium, all of which play important roles in muscle function when you’re active.

A little lime juice can provide extra vitamin C to aid with natural healing processes post-workout; ginger has been shown to decrease pain while providing relief from inflammation (which often accompanies strenuous activity) as well as helping digestion; honey will act as an anti-inflammatory agent on top of its already immune-boosting properties. I recommend adding about one tablespoon each of lime juice, ginger root powder, or fresh grated ginger root and honey for every 12  ounces of water.

After a hard workout, it’s essential to rehydrate and replenish your energy stores by consuming enough carbohydrates (and protein as well). You could drink these recovery drinks alone or with food – I like to add them to my post-workout smoothies.

Pineapple Orange Mango Juice From Trader Joe’s (Or Your Preferred Grocery Store)

-This is my go-to recovery drink. It’s not protein, but it does have a lot of potassium and natural sugars for energy recovery. I like that the ingredients are fresh fruit instead of powders or chemicals  .

-The pineapple orange mango juice from Trader Joe’s (or your preferred grocery store) has all these benefits: The juices in this mixture provide carbs, which help replenish glycogen stores broken down during exercise; they also offer antioxidants for detoxification plus vitamin C and other nutrients important to immunity; furthermore, the vitamins B12 and D in these fruits can promote healthy nervous system function. This combination improves athletic performance by energizing muscles while reducing delayed onset muscle soreness.

-This article outlines ten P90X recovery drink alternatives that are better than Gatorade or Powerade  . Recovery drinks should include protein as well as some form of carbohydrates such as fruit juice or a sports drink because both will be depleted after mangoing.

-The first recovery drink is water with a lemon squeezed into it and honey mixed in to give the taste of something more than just water. This will be good for an immediate boost, but not if you have other things to do afterward or don’t want to wait before your next workout.

Protein Shake

-A protein shake is another great option that can easily provide plenty of nutrients from whey isolate, casein powder (optional), oatmeal, frozen fruit of choice, almond milk, or coconut milk  . The benefits are plentiful as well because they’re high in both carbohydrates and proteins which maximizes muscle recovery while also promoting fat burning after workouts  . To make this recipe simply put all ingredients into a blender together until desired consistency.
