What are your picks for recovery type drinks for after a hard workout (cardio/plyo/weights)?
Make your own? Pay $11tybillion for some commercially made magic juice?
First image found:
shake. or dinner. you dont need a particular 'recovery shake' truth be told most people dont work out hard enough to need one. but peoples diets are generally **** and a protien shake is the healthiest thing they'll consume all day anyway so it might as well be post workout.

300 calories periworkout. Glucose, protein and BCAA's. Tasty.
I don't have the big guy endorseability of Sir Biggz, but it works for me and a lot of folks I know.
Chocolate 2% milk. Or in the winter, hot chocolate.
It's not really necessary for me to use a true recovery drink, but this is a habit that I like that I got into back in the day when I competed in triathlons. And, it's tasty and the macros add up for me.
I mix it myself with my own ingredients and never buy the prebottled stuff.
Repice? OK, here you go.
Katie's supersimple tastydelicious chocolate milk recipe:
1.5 cup of 2% milk. I buy the local organic stuff but use what you like best.
1.5 Tablespoon of unsweetened dark cocoa. I like Ghirardelli.
1-1.5 teaspoons raw sugar or honey.
A dash of salt and vanilla extract, maybe a marshmallow.

Close enough to the 40-30-30 split that I try to strive for.
chocolate milk is a great recovery drink... cheap too!
one of my friends is a marathon runner (drunk/hungover runner).... and he drinks choclate milk like it's water.
too bad... I'm pretty lactose intolerant (i can deal with it in very small portions)
there's always beer for a "recovery drink"

Last week I bought by mistake some lactose-free organic 2%. It tasted so very slightly different but still like milk. It was good -- I'd buy it again if I were lactose intolerant. I think it was a little more expensive but I don't remember how much.
Have triathlons coming up April 7 and May 6, so chocolate milk and I will become close friends.
Just started reading the non-car section of this site, and thought I'd offer my recovery shake: fruit and a scoop or two of vanilla yogurt, blended. My wife got the suggestion from a pro fitness model she worked with, and I'll be damned if it doesn't help reduce muscle soreness and fatigue afterwards.
This is my post workout shake / breakfast at about 7:30 am (@ the gym from 6am-7am)
1 scoop ON whey protein (double rich chocolate or strawberry banana)
strawberries (2 or 3)
blueberries (small handful)
1 tbsp nat pb (not always)
1 cup of either skim milk or chocolate Almond Breeze if I really need a chocolate fix
Been working well for me - keeps me sated until around 10:30 - 11:00am...when it's time for brunch!
