To reap the maximum benefits of all those burpees and squats, it’s important to be mindful of how you fuel your body post-workout. Turns out that when it comes to drinks, you really don’t have to stick to plain water. Here are the best drinks to have after exercising.

Chocolate Milk

Good news to all the chocolate lovers. According to experts, chocolate milk is a great post-workout beverage as it is rich in protein and carbohydrates that help replenish the body, as well as many important nutrients.

Coconut Water

Not only is coconut water refreshing, but it also contains magnesium and potassium, which are commonly lost through sweating. As coconut water doesn’t contain carbs, the ideal way to drink it after a workout is by adding it to a smoothie or shake.

Orange Juice

Orange juice doesn’t have to only be reserved for breakfast. It’s another refreshing and yummy drink that is full of potassium, as well as immunity-building vitamin C.


Research shows that both green and black tea is effective at reducing muscle soreness and recovering muscle strength quicker, making tea an excellent drink to have post-workout.
