Rated 5 out of 5 by thepak92 Great for what it's purpose is
Some have said tastes like Orange Creamsicle, children's aspirin (the old St. Josephs bottle) and the like. I have to say- if you use 2 scoops and just 12 ounces of H20 then yes, more like a creamsicle but if you choose to dilute it then it's more like the children's aspirin.
As suggested during the Plyo workout, I've also used it during my plyo workout and am glad that I do.
Here's my take- If I know I'm going to have a recovery drink after my workout- I will push it that much harder because of the reward at the end. This is more on the cardio days. One day I wasn't paying attention and threw down some protein powder on cardio day and I felt it later. I'm sure some of it is mental- but I absolutely recover a lot faster and feel ready to go again a lot quicker when I have the recovery drink. It's definitely an acquired taste but just about anything is that's some sort of supplemental drink but a lot better tasting then avg. whey protein powder mix. Just keep in mind that it's a recovery drink, not used for bulking up (for that use whey protein). So- bottom line- for recovery it's absolutely fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by T Monny Great stuff!
Use a blender and don't drink it warm. If you do this, Recovery Drink is the best! Without a blender, it's a little tough to mix thoroughly, and it tastes weird and milky when warm. When cold and blended, it's the perfect thing after a workout. You can feel it restoring your body while you drink! Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyPerkis Great Tasting & Effective
I started out my p90x journey without a recovery drink, and the first two weeks were really rough. I could hardly keep moving after a workout and days felt like weeks. The next morning, I'd wake up in pain and worry about having to do it all again.
However, I bought the recovery drink and haven't looked back. The taste is second to none and it gives me all the energy I need to get through my day after a hard workout. Furthermore, the aches and pains the next day are greatly reduced by the drink.
All-in-all, I can't imagine having the success I've had with p90x without the aid of the recovery drink.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Girish Joshi The recovery drink is fantastic. The recovery is truly remarkable. The first time I tried the P90x recovery formula was after a 35 mile bike ride. Usually that would leave me tired for most of the day, but after this recovery drink, I felt energetic through out the day. Way to go. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Mary Schrank Just started round 3 of P90X. I have always had available and drank my recovery drink following each and every workout, however I ran out and didn't have any for this first week of round 3. I cannot tell you how sore I am all over. Everything hurts with the exception of the tip of my nose. The P90X Recovery Formula works as I have found out the hard way. Yes, I just placed my order and am awaiting my shipment any day now. Thanks Beachbody for P90X Recovery Formula.

Rated 0 out of 5 OMG this stuff is great. It works really well. I haven't been really sore since I started drinking it and it tastes great. Some days when I really don't want to work out it's my motivation. I tell myself I can't have a recovery drink if I don't work out

Rated 0 out of 5 by Marion At first I thought the recovery drink was just another way to get a few more dollars. But after my husband and I started P90X, we knew we needed something after the exhausting workouts, so we ordered the recovery drink. It really is as great as Tony Horton, says it is in all the videos. It's such a great and refreshing treat after the workouts, and I get a little boost of energy back after I drink it. Just a really great product and I recommend it to anyone trying P90X.
