Rated 4 out of 5 by P90X Grad Works Great
I have been using the results and recovery drink for the past 3 months and it works great. When I received my recent order it was the "new and improved" version of this drink. While the effectiveness hasn't changed and the product improved from a technical standpoint the flavor is a big disappointment. Where the old formula was sweeter and creamier, the new formula is more bitter and leaves a bad after taste. I can drink it and will continue to use this product but I no longer look forward to it after my workout due to the change in flavor. I understand that you are trying to reduce the fat and sugar content but I enjoyed the old formula much better for the limited savings in these areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nittany85 Most palatible recovery drink I've used.
I did P90X over a year ago and now train for road races and triathlons. I used the P90X Results and Recovery Drink while I was doing P90X, then began trying other recovery drinks when I moved on to road race and tri training. I've found others that are as effective, but none that tastes as good. I've found that this is also economical compared to the competition. I continue to purchase and use this to support recovery in all of my endurance training.

Rated 3 out of 5 by qwanie Good for you but...
The new formula has a slightly improved nutritional profile but the taste of the old formula is significantly better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by P90X User New & Improved??? I don't think so...
I looked forward to the recovery drink after every workout. With the introduction of the "new & improved" drink, I'll be looking for other options. The new drink doesn't come close to the flavor of the original. Beachbody...please bring back the original. There was nothing to improve on. Until then, I'll be looking for other options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maui Mike Bring back the old formula!
The original formula was great and I ordered it several times. The new product you call "new and improved" is not. Please bring back the old and better formula!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bob A Dont like the taste of the new and improved at all
Give me a chance to choose the original, please! I loved the original and otten froze it over night, took it out of the freezer just when i start my workout and eat it when finished... My very own ice cream treat. The new and improved product has noticeable improvements for carbs and cholesterol, but not worth the sacrafice of taste. I am returning the new and improved and hoping to get my hands on the older version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeepinshell Liked it better before "New and Improved" came out
I absolutely LOVED this product before they changed it. When used with a hand blender (immersion blender) and very cold water as instructed (12 oz water, 2 scoops), it made a frothy delicious drink that I sooo looked forward to after a hard workout. And I believe it truly did help with reducing the muscle soreness, and helping me feel better almost immediately.
However, the "New and Improved" drink, certainly doesn't taste as smooth and as good as it once did. I heard that there were people complaining about the fructose in it, that it was bad for you. Fructose is found in fruit, a naturally occuring sugar; don't confuse this for high fructose corn syrup: not the same thing folks! So, the "new and improved" version has replaced fructose with stevia, a sweetener made from the stevia plant. Now, there is an awful aftertaste that wasn't there before, and the taste isn't as smooth and yummy as it was.
PLEASE, please, please consider offering both versions for people to choose from. The prior one with fructose and NO stevia, and the "new and improved" one with the stevia. I will choose the older one without stevia - much better and more satisfying. I won't buy anymore of the new one, don't like the taste anymore. Will just drink chocolate milk if I have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dorkster compared to other supplements out there, this is the only one that i look forward to after a workout. It makes you feel great after a hard workout and gives you the energy you need to do other things later on the day. Just put some ice with to make it extra cold, it'll be more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nurs05 great product
I love this stuff. If I don't drink it after my workout I am definitely sore the next day, but if taken in the 1st hour after working out it prevents all my muscle aches the next day allowing me to work out just as hard each and every day.
