abloc Nutrition Review

A few weeks ago, Mitch from abloc Nutrition reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to try their Endurance Recovery drink in the flavor of chocolate milk. Always on the lookout for something new, I agreed!

What makes abloc’s product different?

abloc’s recovery powder has a 2-to-1 carb-to-protein ratio. They explain further - We found that this is the perfect ratio to perform the double duty of replenishing depleted glycogen stores (energy) as well as repairing damaged muscle fibers. Recovering from a run doesn't have to be complicated, and you don't need fancy chemicals to bounce back quickly. All you really need is the right combination of carbs and protein.

One of my favorite parts about their product….

A lot of sports recovery drinks are loaded with simple sugars like fructose. The problem is that these drinks cause a quick spike in blood sugar, which your body can't store as glycogen fast enough. We've kept the sugar content low, and have included almost all complex carbohydrates. These complex carbs deliver a steady stream of glucose to quickly and efficiently replenish your glycogen stores.

The first time I tried this Endurance Recovery beverage, I only had water on hand. I ran a few miles after work that day and brought the powder along with me. Although the beverage was very tasty with water, I wanted to try it with almond milk, too.

A few days later, I tested the recovery mix with milk and loved it! The drink was creamy and smooth with a perfect texture and flavor.

No mess, no blender – the powder mixed easily and did not stay clumped in the milk.

This recovery mix lived up to it’s name, had a smooth texture, and tasted exactly like chocolate milk. I also love that the recovery drink isn’t  chocked full of sugar – 2 g per serving makes this girl a happy runner!

Thanks Mitch and abloc Nutrition! I appreciate this opportunity!

Do you drink a recovery beverage? What’s your favorite brand/flavor?


  1. Advocare has some yummy stuff that I love!

  2. Nope, I have yet to drink a "real" recovery beverage. I usually drink vanilla almond milk. I love your Mickey NY tumbler!

  3. No blender needed? Sign me up! I love less dishes.

    Btw, love your Mickey Mouse tumbler!

  4. Oh that sounds great! I love it when there is no chalky flavor and no clumps when you mix it. And the low sugar factor is definitely a plus!

  5. Love the Mickey Tumbler! I'm not a fan of chalky flavor, but this sounds good.
