I've been avoiding ice cream for a long time. However, while chewing on a Clif bar after a hard ride today, I was thinking about acceptable recovery foods. From what I've read, a good serving of high GI carbs (i.e. sugar) + some protein = a good recovery meal. I've also seen the studies about chocolate milk being a good recovery drink, and the nutritional facts of ice cream and chocolate milk aren't very different. So, are a few servings (depending on how long/intense the ride was) of ice cream an acceptable (perhaps even a good) recovery meal?
