The chocolate milk thing is kinda BS.
For a start pre-made chocolate milks often contain: Corn Syrup/fructose and sugar both of which are going to spike your insuline levels and have a detrimental effect on fat burning and energy levels.
If your going to do it. I would suggest Full fat Milk with Pure (or at least 90% Cocoa powder) - followed by a small handful of nuts.
Not ideal for bodybuilders but If your looking to get stronger and recover better I would recommend a small amount of healthy fats with your protein.

The problem is i have enough of it of my own. I need something feeling, healthy and maybe not too fattening if possible.

The research involved eight male runners in good physical shape who ate a balanced diet for two weeks. At the end of each week, they took a fast paced, 45-minute run.
Following each run, the men drank either 16 ounces of fat-free chocolate milk or 16 ounces of a carbohydrate-only sports beverage with the same number of calories.
Post-exercise muscle biopsies showed increased skeletal muscle protein synthesis -- a sign that muscles were better able to rebuild -- after the milk drink, compared with the carb-only beverage.
Additionally, drinking fat-free chocolate milk led to a higher concentration of glycogen, or muscle fuel, in muscles 30 and 60 minutes after exercise, compared with the sports drink.
Replenishing glycogen after exercise helps future performance, Lunn says.
The findings were presented at the American College of Sports Medicine conference in Baltimore this week.

Many of us wonder what to eat after a workout, and the answer is: It depends! It depends on what kind of workout you are doing, and what your goal is – fat loss, performance improvements, mass gain, etc. There’s a lot of information floating around about what is “best”, but most of it comes from the body-building community.(and is probably not that relevant to your average combat sports athlete)
*Sugar stimulates a physiological stressor-reaction cascade that provokes adrenaline and cortisol release and thickens the blood.
*Sugar decreases your body’s production of leptin, a hormone critical for appetite regulation.
*Sugar promotes fat storage and weight gain.
*Sugar disrupts the effective transfer of amino acids to muscle tissue.
*Sugar intake over time spurs insulin resistance, subsequent Type II diabetes.
This whole sugar after workout business is just bad pseudo science. I'm not trying to come across hostile on this but to be brutally honest I think its nothing short of fucking Bullshit.

I had a check on the chocolate milk in my fridge (Morrisson's own brand) last night, seemed healthy enough for what it is. Just semi-skimmed milk, cocoa powder and sugar. 78kcal/100ml. I can certainly think of worse ways to get calories back into the system after training.

The "sugar is poison" meme is what's pseudo-science, my friend. You do realise it all ends up as glucose anyway, right?
