Despite its name, this recovery shake won't help you recuperate after a bad blind date. It will, however, give your body the protein and carbohydrates it needs to restore energy and repair muscle micro-tears after a vigorous workout.

It flexes its big, naturally sweet guns with 9 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbs. This recovery shake is also suitable for endurance athletes with dietary restrictions. It's gluten-free and vegan.
