Depending on your body weight, you’ll need between 10 and 20 grams of protein to help your body recover and rebuild after your workout (via Forbes). Rather than saddle up to a smoothie bar or wait until you get home to your blender, Muscle Milk has ready-to-drink protein shakes that you can stash in your workout bag that will meet your protein needs. Muscle Milk’s Genuine Protein ready-to-drink bottles have 25 grams of protein with 160 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 9 grams of carbs, and 6 grams of fiber.
You’ll also get a healthy amount of vitamin A, D, and C, as well as iron, calcium, and potassium. This post-workout shake has no added sugar, but it’s sweetened with sucralose. Many of Muscle Milk’s products (but not all) have NSF Certified for Sport certification, which means they are free from contaminated ingredients. However, you might need some additional carbohydrates to replace your glycogen levels (via Forbes).
