Overview: Melissa’s Mix all-natural, GMO free recovery drinks are intended to be consumed immediately after strenuous endurance and strength training workouts. Consistent use will greatly reduce post-workout soreness and replenish energy reserves. Our simple formula is consistent with current research and its effectiveness will stand toe to toe with any product on the market. Tastes great in water, milk and fruit smoothies all without artificial sweeteners or flavoring.

Flavor: Sweet, tangy and creamy, our Tangerine Cream Recovery Drink is a delightful combination of flavors, reminiscent of an orange dreamsicle.

Mixing Instructions: Mix 2 scoops (50 grams) of Melissa’s Mix Recovery Drink in 1 cup of liquid. Use 3 scoops for workouts that exceed one hour. Mixing with less liquid will produce a richer, stronger flavor while further dilution makes the flavor milder. Tastes great with water but some customers prefer to mix with milk or fruit juice. Although blending will produce the most homogeneous mixture, our recovery drinks can easily be mixed by shaking in any container with a tight fitting lid.

Each 5lb bag has 45 servings (2 scoops = 50 grams)

  1. Just As Good for Half the Price Review by Jessica

    About two years ago, my husband introduced me to the P90X recovery drink, because I was complaining about always being sore after workouts, even though I was eating plenty of protein. It was like a miracle solution to me.

    I was going to order some more on Amazon a couple weeks ago, and Mike's Mix came up in my search results.... for half the price? I was skeptical. So I decided to do some research, which is how I stumbled onto the Mike's Mix blog, and subsequently discovered Melissa's Mix. Their research and ingredients seemed to be sound, and I loved that everything in Melissa's Mix comes from natural sources, so I decided to give it a try.

    I've been using Melissa's Mix for two weeks now, and it really is JUST AS GOOD as the P90X recovery drink - for half the price! The one warning I would give is that it tastes like a *real* tangerine drink... not that fake Kool Aid taste the P90X drink has. For me, this was a down side (I like fake citrus flavors, but not real citrus flavors... I'm crazy, I know), but I just put a tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder in (3 extra calories), and now it tastes like a chocolate covered orange peel... which I can definitely get behind!

    Even with the flavor surprise, this was well worth the money. IMO, it's a higher quality product, for half the price. Thank you Mike & Melissa! (Posted on 8/20/15)

  2. Taking protein has c Review by Olawumi

    Taking protein has chngaed my life. I have been climbing and training for over 10 years and noticed the biggest change to my climbing, strength, and recovery when I started taking protein. I think that taking protein is the way to really progress as a climber and push myself. (Posted on 10/16/14)

Over the past 50 years, an extraordinary amount of research has focused on sports nutrition. Unfortunately, “common knowledge” can be heavily influenced by supplement marketing that is often unsupported or even contradictory to the research. At Mike’s Mix, our goal is to bridge that gap between common knowledge and research.  All functional ingredients have studies to support their safety and effectiveness. The following are links directly to the peer reviewed research used to formulate this product. If there is research to support omission of an ingredient that our competition may use, we have also included those links.


1. Short-term recovery from prolonged exercise: exploring the potential for protein ingestion to accentuate the benefits of carbohydrate supplements.

2. Dietary strategies to promote glycogen synthesis after exercise.

3. Role of carbohydrate in physical activity.

4. Glycogen resynthesis after exercise: effect of carbohydrate intake.

5. Muscle glycogen storage after prolonged exercise: effect of the glycemic index of carbohydrate feedings.

6. Effects of recovery beverages on glycogen restoration and endurance exercise performance.

7. Dietary protein to support anabolism with resistance exercise in young men: 

8. Postexercise carbohydrate-protein supplementation improves subsequent exercise performance and intracellular signaling for protein synthesis.

9. Sugar and exercise: its importance in athletes.

10. Fructose and galactose enhance postexercise human liver glycogen synthesis.
