I'm looking for some sort of pre-game (wrestling) shake that I can drink 2 hours before a match. My goal is something that I can absorb quickly but will also give me the right amount of protein, carbs, sugars, etc, and of course taste good.

Storage is another goal. I'll either be making this the night before or the morning of the match and whatever I'm making should be able to keep all day in a cooler.

Any suggestions for recipes would be great; currently I'm eating a sandwich pre-game and it just doesn't seem to be cutting it.

Why 2 hours before?

We weigh in at 5. Varsity starts wrestling at around 7, so I could actually wrestle somewhere around 7:30, 8 even; we don't know what weight the duel starts at (the coaches pull the weight out of a hat). This means I could wrestle first or last. Anyways...

While a shake wouldn't automatically be a bad choice depending on its contents, it would make more sense to eat real food before a match. Complex carbs are best for this time, IE:Oat meal, whole grains, legumes, sweet potato. Eating sugar or other high GI carb 1-2 hours before hand could lead to a relative drop in energy and strength.
