Rated 1 out of 5 by mr.crosstrainer too high in sugar
It has about a third of the amount of protein and 35 times as much sugar as a typical post work out drink. I think its a waste of time unless your looking for a cavity. It does taste great but you might as well just eat a bowl of ice cream and really indulge yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim M Tastes good, mixes well, sufficient calories
This mix is very refreshing and, though I'm no expert, appears to have the right mix of nutrients you body is starving for after a hard workout.
It mixes very well and tastes great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazy I Love IT!!! I look forward to it. Blend it !
I love the P90 X recovery drink. Sometimes I do the workout because I know the drink will follow. I blend it with water and ice. Thanks for creating this awesome drink. I started P90X a month ago, I was dreading the sore muscles feeling, but thanks to this drink I didn't experience any soreness!!! THANK YOU!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jason33 I love it!
I work at a job during 3rd shift. And I usually workout 2 1/2 hours before I head into work. With how intesne the workouts are, I would have expected to be completely exhausted during my shift, but I feel the Recovery drink has a lot to do with the energy I have at work to keep me goin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SugarEyes After workout sugar rush
I was considering buying this until I looked at the ingredients. What is this? Sugar, protein, sugar, sugar.... seriously? Just drink a protein shake and add some carbs and creatine.

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.
