As long as it’s a low fat brand, researchers from Cornell University have called chocolate milk the “gold standard for a recovery beverage”.

Clint Wattenberg, who coordinates sports nutrition at Cornell, said that after numerous experiments they settled on a surprising find. They agreed that an 8 ounce bottle of chocolate milk was the best choice.
