    lactose intolerant recovery drink.

    At 63years old I've developed a sensitity to milk products. I can make a whey protein shake if I go light on the powder. But, chocolate milk is out. I know soy protein is not the best. Any other suggestions?

    Chocolate lactaid. I use lactaid in place of anything requiring milk.
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    What about plant based protein powder other than soy protein? I just ordered plantfusion chocolate powder to try. I'm in the same boat as the OP

    1) You can research different forms of protein powders that are not whey based
    2) You can eat a meat product for the protein part
    3) It is not as important to get the protein right away as the carbs, so you can just get the protein later via a normal meal.

    I race Cat 1 and don't use no protein powders. Ive been vegan for 11 years. If I can meet my protein needs with whole plant foods and a diet of mostly fruit then ANYONE can!

    Here is my fav recovery drink after a 24hr solo race win or a 300mile training ride or anytime I want a solid meal.

    How about one of the many recovery drinks. I use the Hammer recoverite and have been for a while. I also have lactose issues and this does not seem to have any effect on me.

    Costco sells Lactose Enzyme pills. You just pop a pill or two with your first swig. Its been working for me.

    I use Jay Robb egg protein shakes. Yeah, pricey. You can mix it with water though. Or coconut milk - either way it is a good shake.

    I have the same issues with lactose and have used a lot of the products available and have had great succes with Muscle Milk in the bottle and Vega recovery. Race a lot and have had great results.
