I also believe it's important to eat a small snack within 20-30 minutes of an intense workout, ideally comprised of (for me) an equal ratio of fast carbs (to recover quickly) and some protein. For short, less intense sessions, IMO a post-workout snack isn't really necessary, for me, anyway.

Milk (including chocolate) is actually an excellent recovery drink following a major exercise session of two hours or more.
