Lucy says: There’s nothing like the smell of hot chocolate on a cold morning. This one, however, is no ordinary hot chocolate.
Packed with 20 supplements, including vitamins, electrolytes and potassium, this recovery drink is designed to be enjoyed after a race or heavy training session. It is also consciously made: the milk, sugar and cocoa in Apres are all sustainably farmed and free from synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
It comes in 40g sachets which can easily be stored in your pocket on the commute to work or tucked into workout gear. Each sachet has a 3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio and can be whizzed up in a matter of seconds - simply empty the sachet into a mug and top up with boiling water.
If chocolate milkshake is your go-to drink in the summer months, this makes a great post-run alternative over the winter months. Perfect if you're training for a spring marathon this winter.
Apres comes at £26.99 for 15 sachets.
