Aldi has worked with leading nutritionist Angela Dowden to create a range of energy enhancing and nourishing drinks recipes, perfect to help any athlete claim the top prize this summer.

The perfect shake for Tom is aptly named the Healthy Hydrator and includes a balance of all the fluids and carbs he needs to do his best at the Aquatics Centre. There's a mix of kiwi, cucumber and grapes to ensure the shake tastes as good as it delivers.

Angela, Aldi's Consultant Nutritionist, said: "The nation is rooting for Tom and the rest of the team, so we came up with the idea to create the range of refreshing yet healthy shakes to show our support. As well all the Healthy Hydrator, we also have The Wonder Woman Shake, The Age Defier and The 'Mo'tivator.  So whether you need a quick boost or that extra lift of nourishment, Aldi has the perfect shake to lend a helping hand this summer.

"I would encourage aspiring sports stars to think twice before they reach for a bottled sports drink in the shops. There is far more nutritional value in shakes like the ones I have developed that are made from fresh produce - and they're much cheaper, too. Remember that these recipes also contribute to your five a day."

Information on all of Angela's recipes can be found below. To find your local store and get all the necessary ingredients log on to: http://www.aldi.co.uk
