Best in Test: Recovery Drinks

Recover right with our pick of the best high-protein, post-run drinks

PRODUCT

BIO-SYNERGY WHEY BETTER

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 8 / MIXABILITY: 9 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

Easy to take on board immediately after a tough session, this tastes like a milkshake (even when mixed with water) and, more importantly, doesn’t leave an unpleasant aftertaste. Quite pricey, but worth it if you’re serious about recovery.

£38.99 (25 servings), bio-synergy.uk


PRODUCT

XF WHEY EXTREME

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 7 / MIXABILITY: 8 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 7

XF Whey Xtreme

Don’t be put off by the in-your-face marketing: there are no ‘extreme’ levels of protein here, just a perfect 23g. The Chocolate flavour is very sweet, so won’t be to some runners’ tastes, but it goes down smooth with either water or milk.

£42.99 (93 servings), thexfbrand.com


PRODUCT

HIGH5 PROTEIN RECOVERY

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 8 / MIXABILITY: 8 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

High5 Protein Recovery

Easy to mix with water or milk, and providing a blend of both carbs and whey protein isolate, this light and refreshing recovery shake is a solid addition to your post-run routine. A tasty way to aid recovery, without breaking the bank.

£15.75 (9 x 60g sachets), highfive.co.uk


PRODUCT

PULSIN PEA PROTEIN

MARKS OUT OF 10

TASTE: 9 / MIXABILITY: 7 / POST-RUN APPEAL: 8

Pulsin Choc Pea Protein 250g 3D CMYK

Used predominantly after hard sessions or long runs, your tester did feel like it helped with recovery. Gives a good blast of protein (20g) per sachet and has minimal added sugar. Tastes good but occasionally wouldn’t be that easy to mix which is the only downside with this product. Would recommend.

£13.49 (10 servings), pulsin.co.uk
