Skratch Labs Sport Recovery Drink Mix
The fastest way to recover when all your cookies have been spent.
Sport Recovery Drink Mix is designed to rapidly refuel, rehydrate, and rebuild you when you’re completely empty after your longest and hardest workouts.
For the on the go athlete, we also offer a special Go Mix packaging which contains a mixing ball in order to help you mix your drink all in one fell swoop.
It’s for those times when you’re totally cooked and you don’t have a personal chef to hand you a burrito or the time to make one yourself. It’s not designed for recovering after an easy stroll around the neighborhood or for getting swole. But, if you accidentally do get swole, make sure to post pictures on Instagram.
Technically, our Sport Recovery Drink Mix is a 4 to 1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein, that’s designed to bring your blood sugar up fast. This causes the hormone insulin to spike, which is key to getting the sugar, electrolytes, fat, and protein in our Sport Recovery Drink Mix back into muscle fast. Basically, our Sport Recovery Drink Mix is really sweet milk – like chocolate milk, but without a tongue-twisting list of excess ingredients and with a more optimized macronutrient profile for restoring muscle glycogen (aka, refueling).
But, the real magic is that our Sport Recovery Drink Mix actually tastes great. So great, that you might want to drink it all the time. The problem is that while there’s a scientific rationale for the high amount of sugar we use, it’s not an amount that’s healthy to consume if you just sat on your butt all day. Earn it. We care too much for you not to.
Also, we know milk bends some people because they’re lactose intolerant, so we’ve added lactase to digest all the milk sugar. We also know that after a super hard workout, your gut can be pretty fubarred, so we also added the probiotic bacillus coagulans 30 to make things better.
And ya, it’s non-GMO, Kosher, vegetarian, and gluten free (we’re from Boulder).

Our Sport Recovery Mix is intended for use immediately after exercise, especially when that bout of exercise leaves you feeling hungry, when you don't have a meal made from scratch readily available, and when you want to fast track the recovery process.
Because our Sport Recovery Mix is a whole food product made with only real natural ingredients, you can also use it when your metabolism is on the fast track and when you're so hungry that you're being a menace to yourself and others.
This mix is a great to have as a post ride drink. All three flavors very good and have a natural taste. I like mixing the Chocolate and Coffee mixes once in a while to change up the flavor to 'mocha'. Horchata reminds me of the churros from Disneyland.
