While chocolate milk is a great pre-workout drink, you may want to add some extra proteins in your post-workout recovery drink. Adding a scoop of Whey protein powder to your chocolate milk will result in a potent combo. The extra proteins from the protein powder help the muscles in long-term recovery, while the quick carbs from the chocolate drink help in short term recovery.
I mix 1 scoop of Whey protein powder to 1 packet of chocolate milk (250ml) and vigorously shake the whole thing with ice. The blended drink is both deliciously tasty and very healthy. The nutritional data for this drink is shown below:

The great thing about protein powders these days is that they come in so many flavors. Once you get tired of one flavor, you can just jump to the next flavor as the protein content in all the flavors is almost identical.
