Protein First Recovery Drink is designed for athletes engaged in strength, power and fitness workouts who prioritize gains in lean muscle and body fat reduction. Protein First’s main ingredient is a high quality, gently processed whey protein concentrate. Whey protein is superior to other proteins post-workout as it is rapidly absorbed and has an excellent amino acid profile ideal for muscle growth and repair. The ratio of carbohydrate to protein (2:1) is significantly higher in protein than other recovery drinks catering to endurance athletes. The quickly digesting carbohydrates promote recovery by replenishing glycogen, lowering cortisol and producing a favorable insulin response. However the carbohydrate in Protein First will not exceed post-workout recovery needs and spoil a low-carbohydrate diet.

Protein First Recovery Drink is made from real foods (milk, beets, sweet potatoes, tapioca, honey and molasses) with no artificial colorings, preservatives, sweeteners or harmful additives. It’s a testimony to the quality of the ingredients that the pleasant, natural flavor does not need to be disguised by unnecessary additives. This product is free of gluten, wheat, corn, or any other GMO grain.

Flavor: In one word the flavor is chocolate, but in reality the beet, sweet potato, honey, molasses and cocoa produce a pleasant and subtle flavor that is unique and delicious.

Mixing Instructions: Mix 3 scoops of Protein First Recovery Drink in 1-2 cups of liquid, shake to combine. Tastes great with water but some customers prefer to mix with milk, juice or even coffee.

Each 4lb container has 24 servings (3 scoops = 75 grams)  Customised serving size instructions based on bodyweight located on container.

  1. Impressed! Review by Carlos Tkacs

    Nutrition is something I have been concerned with for a while now, an I try and do as much research as I can. One thing that impresses me about Mike's Mix (aside from all the usual stuff, like taste, affordability, and all that) is the amount of information they provide to consumers here on their. One of the reasons I decided to go with their Protein First mix is because of the research I found right here on their website. The fact they have a Research tab for their products at all is an amazing thing for someone like me (I am a composition professor and try to pay attention to the information management of companies trying to sell me things); even better, the research they use is not company funded. It seems to me that they have done their research and then developed their products with that research in mind. In my opinion, that's about as an honest of a way you can go about running a business.

  3. Great product Review by Carlos

    I purchase protein first for my 14 yr old son and he absolutely loved the taste of protein first. I have notice that he not been as sore after workouts and he has gotten stronger. Protein first is the only supplement that we are using. I love that it is an all natural product as well, we will continue to be a customer. Thanks Mike (Posted on 1/5/16)

  4. Awesome! Review by Aaron

    I've been using the Protein First Recovery Drink since summer of 2015 (6months now) and I LOVE it! I've always enjoyed protein mixes and recovery drinks but this is the first product that actually tastes awesome! Not only does it taste good, it really does contain what you need post workout. You'll like it.the stuff too. Thanks Team MM. (Posted on 12/10/15)

  5. Smooth! Review by Deanna

    I've been a Mike's Mix customer since the beginning. I love the customer service and how receptive MIke is to our wishes. I've changed from endurance events to Power lifting recently so was really happy to see this product. It mixes so easily with water after my workout, no clumps. The taste is very smooth and silky chocolate. I really like knowing that I'm taking something that I know is vetted for being a quality product and putting that in after a hard workout. Thanks MIke, (Posted on 10/3/15)

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.

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

11. Muscle glycogen synthesis before and after exercise.
