As an avid runner, I have always been on the lookout for the best workout recovery drinks.

Sometimes water just won’t do the trick after a tough workout, and we need another drink to give us some nutrition.

The problem is a lot of sports drinks on the market contain less than superior ingredients, like artificial dyes and processed sweeteners.

I am happy to say that I have finally found seven of the most natural, portable, and all around best workout recovery drinks.

1. Coconut Water

Fresh coconut water is absolutely one of the best workout recovery drinks there is.2

It is rich in potassium (an electrolyte) and has about five times more than the artificial, store-bought alternative!

Also, it contains some sodium which is lost during the hardest of workouts.

These two key ingredients are naturally occurring in coconut water, and are not natural in man-made sports drinks.2

Although fresh from a young coconut is best, boxed coconut water is still amazing and is relatively cheap as well.

The boxed varieties come in so many delicious flavors: mango, pineapple, pink guava, and even chocolate!

2. Tart Cherry Juice

There has been a lot of research done lately about the benefits of consuming tart cherry juice after your workout.

It is beneficial because tart cherry juice is rich in anti-inflammatory flavonoids and antioxidants.

It can dramatically help reduce muscle soreness, so I highly recommend this after a tough session.

Tart cherry juice thus creates a quicker recovery, and a quicker recovery means that you can work out more often and with more intensity.

Who can complain about that?

3. Homemade Sports Drinks

Freeze – before you guzzle that sport drink after your workout, read the ingredients list.

Do you even know what all of those ingredients (food dye, sucrose, monopotassium phosphate) are?

I can assure you that they are not ingredients you want to be putting in your body, especially when it’s crucial to get nutritious drinks after working out.

Instead, try making your own sports drink.

Make it using freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, water, a little sea salt, and a touch of raw honey.

The raw honey contains many enzymes and carbohydrates that provide a quick burst of energy, so it is a perfect quick recovery option.
