If you have been following @craigballantyne on twitter, you will hear him mention his post workout drink, chocolate milk quite often.  This got me to thinking just why he would use chocolate milk and what is someone was lactose intolerant (such as I am) would Chocolate Soy Milk or Almond Milk compare?

So I decided to experiment and find out! First read this article about why chocolate milk is the newest post workout shake. (thanks @tebynum for the link)

Here are the comparisons of some post workouts drinks:

Chocolate Lowfat Milk(Kroger)
Serving Size: 8 oz; Calories: 180, Total Fat: 2.5g, Carbs: 33g, Protein: 9g

Almond Milk(Almond Breeze)
Serving Size: 1 cup; Calories: 88, Total Fat: 4.9g, Carbs: 9.8g, Protein: 1g

Light Chocolate Soymilk(Silk)
Serving Size: 1 cup; Calories: 120, Total Fat: 1.5g, Carbs: 22g, Protein: 5g

Prograde Workout

Serving Size: 1 scoop (this is what I use) Calories: 100, Total Fat: 0g, Carbs: 15.5g, Protein: 7g

Regular Serving Size: 2 scoops, Calories: 200, Total Fat: 0g, Carbs: 31g, Protein 14g

So by looking at this, they are pretty comparable, and since I can’t use regular milk, I think I will just stick with my Prograde Workout and use Light Chocolate Soy Milk on occasion. What would be your preference?
