Chocolate Milk: A Recovery Drink Worthy of Race Day

March 22, 2018

The Perfect Post Workout Snack

You have a lot of choices for a post-workout snack, why choose chocolate milk? Not only is chocolate milk delicious and satisfying, but it is also high in nutrients essential for recovery. After performing an exercise like running, athletes need carbohydrates to restore energy and protein to repair the muscles. A serving of Rockview Family Farms chocolate milk offers 8 grams of protein and 25 grams of carbohydrates – identified by research as the ideal carbohydrate-to-protein ratio for workout recovery. Chocolate milk is also an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D, all of which help keep bones healthy.

SD Half Marathon

Two weeks ago we had the privilege of providing a pint of ice-cold chocolate milk to every participant in the San Diego Half Marathon as they crossed the finish line at Petco Park! We loved supporting the athletes finish the thirteenth mile strong and reward them with a delicious replenishing and nourishing treat. We know other races that promise beer at the finish, so what did the runners think about this little switch up? They loved it! But don’t take our word for it – here are some quotes from a few of the finishers.

“Chocolate milk was cold and great. Do that again. Bibs looked great and mile markers were easy to find.”

“What a great race! Chocolate milk at the finish was an outstanding idea. Best run and most organized distance race I’ve ever done!”

“The chocolate milk was a big plus!”

“Loved the chocolate milk! Epic being able to run into the stadium and circle around! Loved the great support along the whole race course.”

At Rockview Family Farms we take pride in providing you with fresh, wholesome milk that will fuel your family in all aspects of life – from race day to the dinner table to the classroom. We would love to hear how you enjoy Rockview products – tell us on Facebook or Instagram!
