Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery™ Very Vanilla Description

  • 2:1 Ratio of Carbohydrates to Proteins
  • Optimal Carb Combination for Fastest Absorption
  • Blends Faster, Intermediate, and Slower acting Proteins for Sustained Amino Acid Delivery
  • Loaded with Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates
  • Fortified with 5 Grams of Added Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)


What you eat, when you eat it, and how much you eat has a dramatic effect on your performance. But, not all nutrient combinations work equally well. Our 2:1:1 Recovery™ is based on the latest science demonstrating that blending different types of carbs and proteins maximizes absorption and leads to better results than the use of larger amounts of any single type. Hydrolyzed whey, micellar casein, and egg albumen proteins provide immediate and sustained amino acid delivery for repair and rebuilding while the precise ratio of simple sugars and rapidly-digesting carbs in 2:1:1 Recovery™ helps refuel and replenish hard-working muscles. And with 5 grams of added BCAAs in the proven 2:1:1 ratio of leucine to isoleucine and valine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, there’s no question that 2:1:1 Recovery™ is an indispensable part of every serious athlete’s routine.

The Rapid Recovery Ratios

2:1:1 Carbohydrate Ratio
• 2 x Glucose Polymers + Waxy Maize Starch
• 1 x Sucrose
• 1 x Fructose

2:1:1 Protein Ratio
• 2 x Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate
• 1 x Micellar Casein
• 1 x Egg Albumen

2:1:1 BCAA Ratio
• 2 x Leucine
• 1 x Isoleucine
• 1 x Valine

Beyond the Basics
• 2:1 ratio of carbohydrates to proteins
• Blends FASTER, intermediate, and slower acting PROTEINS for sustained amino acid delivery


SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout.  Just add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery to your shaker cup and then pour in 12-16 ounces of your preferred beverage.  Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds (if you're making a 1 rounded scoop serving, just cut the amount of water, milk, or juice in half).

BLENDER:  Add 2 rounded scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery™ to a blender filled with 12-18 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds, reduce the liquid and ice by half if you are only using one rounded scoop of 2:1:1 Recovery powder.

SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have the time to get out the blender, you can add 1 rounded scoop of 2:1:1 Recovery in a glass filled with cold water, milk or your favorite beverage. If you're preparing a 2 rounded scoop serving add 12-16 oz of liquid, for a 1 rounded scoop serving use 6-8 oz. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.

SUGGESTED USE: Based upon your body weight, activity levels, and performance goals, consume one or more scoops of 2:1:1 Recovery immediately after workouts.

TIP: Consume a high-protein, high-carbohydrate whole food meal or second serving of 2:1:1 Recovery 2-3 hours after your post-workout recovery shake to maximize stored energy levels for your next workout.

Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery™ Very Vanilla -- 3.73 lbs 4 5 5 5
it works & tatses great I love this stuff. It is very effective at reducing fatigue & soreness in my muscles. I have only tried chocolate & mucho mango & both are delicious. I recently ordered Optimum Nutition's "Promax" in chocolate & it does not taste anywhere near as good as this 2:1:1 recovery in chocolate does. the promax has a ton of protein per serving but the muscle recovery effectiveness & flavor are lacking in comparison. i'll choke the other stuff down but next time i'm ordering this 2:1:1 formula again.

excellent stuff! April 26, 2012
Great Product This is such a great product and it really is packed with a ton of nutrition essential to your body after a workout. I use this in lieu of the P90x recovery drink and it seems to work. Best tasting sports supplement I've had, but I do think the mucho mango tastes better than the very vanilla. April 1, 2010
Bad flavor The flavor is nasty. I either have to chug it or blend it with lots of fruit. I recommend banana because the powder has a somewhat banana flavor. I would prefer chocolate powder. July 18, 2008
Very Effective I have been using this product for a month and have just now reached the bottom of my first 3.7lb jug. Two scoops of the 2:1:1 Recovery taken immediately after intense workouts greatly reduced my muscle soreness and post-workout fatigue. This is the best tasting product I have bought so far and since it is only meant to be taken after workouts it does not run out too quicky. Another phenomenal product by Optimum Nutrition.
