Chocolate Milk a Gift with Better Nutrition than Sport Drinks and Kreativ Blogger Award

I was reading this news again about health & fitness – chocolate related… yummmm that called my attention.
The appealing data is recurrently coming over and over, from time to time since several years ago. Here it was published too chocolate milk: the new sports drink?

Chocolate Milk a Better Nutrition than Sport Drinks
The interesting point is for general active people (not only athletes) that low-fat plain chocolate milk can be good or even better as sports energy drinks like Gatorade recovering from vigorous exercises.

I wonder…I assume every now and then, you make some kind of workouts, more or less intense, depending of your physical condition.
No? Well, you should, to minimize back problems and back pains. May be this introduction with 15 tips & benefits to stay healthy, can help you.

Both drinks supply carbs, fluids and electrolytes lost during the training, but the marvelous chocolate milk supply extra proteins making a rapid recovery of the exhausted muscles. Sometime if you’ve a spike of a “workout passion” you may consider this nutrition advice as an option.

Chocolate milk has as advantage that is cheaper, more natural and sensuously irresistible! The problem is that it can spoil after some days, hence you’d drink soon, big deal, isn’t it?

Gera – congratulations on your well deserved reward and thank you so much for your thinking to extend the award to me. I consider it a great honor given the incredible work that you do on your blog. I hope I can live up to the expectations.


I forgot to add that chocolate milk is indeed a great sports drink. My husband and I run regularly ~40 miles a week or I would be 500 pounds! The best drink for us on our return after a fruit smoothie is some wonderful hot chocolate. I've gotten into making the Mexican style with the cinnamon and it is perfect! I agree with your assessment 100%


Thank you so much for the award.

it can also be a lower calorie sports drink by using skim/fat free milk! I'm also in the gym at least 4-5 a week in addition to going for walks outdoors and rollerblading!

Congratulations on your award! I've always loved chocolate milk but I've had to switch to soy milk due to lactose intolerance. But quite honestly, the important part is really the chocolate, isn't it? 😎

Carolyn Jung

Why drink Gatorade when you can have chocolate milk instead? I'm with you on that one. 😉


Congratulations on your award, that is great! And a kitchen explosion? You poor thing. But then I picture you analysing why that happened and taking a scientific and technical approach to it 😉


Good to know! I love chocolate milk so this is great information for me 🙂


You deserve it! A fruity-chocolaty smoothie is good for the body and soul 🙂
