Awesome Chocolate Powder
What makes it Awesome?
Our simple, cost effective recovery solution
Milk + Leucine + chocolate = perfection
Awesome rich chocolate milk, with just one scoop
Research has long indicated that milk is the perfect post workout recovery formula, but that hasn’t stopped supplement companies trying to sell over-priced post workout recovery formulas that are simply protein and simple sugars in an all in one shake (sometimes with some added ingredients that are also often over-hyped for their benefits). Now while there is nothing inherently wrong with protein and simple sugars (two key components in milk), or post workout shake formulas, nature has already produced such a formula, milk. Plus, in milk you get the added benefits of some healthy fat, fat soluble vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds.
Milk is awesome, BUT, chocolate milk is awesome-er.
The only flaw with milk is its lack of leucine, the anabolic amino acid that drives maximal recovery after exercise by stimulating muscle protein synthesis (MPS). While it is true that ingesting protein in any form will switch on MPS after exercise, it might not do it in a maximal fashion if the leucine content isn’t great enough (you want to aim for 3g of leucine on average per meal or shake you consume to maximally stimulate MPS). To get 3g of Leucine per serving of milk you must drink a lot of milk (approx. 1 litre), which for many would be a lot of calories, which is not ideal when taking on board liquid meals, especially if someone is on a diet or looking to closely maintain weight.
That led us to develop a simple solution for natures natural post workout recovery shake, milk, by creating an additive type formula of leucine, lactase and awesome chocolate flavouring. Now you can enjoy a milk chocolate shake by simply adding a scoop of Awesome Chocolate Powder to a serving of milk and get the benefits of milk, a natural liquid meal, but while also maximising its anabolic properties via optimal leucine intake (suggested serving sizes are on the product label and in our downloadable product PDF).
Liquid nutrition re-defined using natures natural shake, milk, we just made it awesome-er.

Lactase - 65,000ug

This product is ideal for people training hard and wanting quick recovery post workout, people that train multiple times a day and struggle getting enough calories on board, people that enjoy the convenience of liquid nutrition and having a post workout shake, people that have a high calorie requirement and need the help of liquid nutrition, and people that just love chocolate milk and want to use this as a snack or shake based meal.
Taking this post workout will provide the body with protein, carbohydrates and fat, all 3 macronutrients, an optimal approach to recovery. If you are wanting to just have protein post workout, or as a liquid meal, we would recommend opting for Awesome Whey Protein instead.
This is also an ideal product for people that compete or train multiple times a day. For example; during CrossFit competitions, people preparing for competition and training multiple times a day, in sports competitions or tournaments where you are playing 3-8 matches a day, endurance events, on a long hike, all environments where easily digested, complete macronutrient sources are ideal, improving recovery rates and supporting the need for a high amount of calories, while minimising digestive discomfort that you often get from whole foods.
