Drink up!

Matt makes me a protein smoothie every morning with yogurt, fresh oj, banana,ย  flax, and berries. I bring it to work to have for my mid-morning breakfast.

In the meantime I have been experimenting with some immediate post-run recovery drinks rather than the usual chocolate milk to have after my morning run.

Here are 2 that I have made that are super easy and yummy! I use rice milk, but regular milk would be good too!

Drink #1- glass of milk, banana, chocolate syrup (or unsweetened cocoa powder) andย  2 tbs. almond butter. (Trader Joe’s has flax in it!) Throw it all in a blender!

Drink #2- half a glass milk, half a glass carrot juice, flax oil, banana, handful of fresh baby spinach, 2 tbs. almond butter- Toss in the blender!

Do you have any favorite post-run drinks?


  1. YUM! #2 sounds right up my alley!! I never would have thought about mixing carrot juice and milk. I’m making a grocery list right now ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Love post run protein shakes! We drink almost the same shakes except I use peanut butter and I add half a scoop of vanilla protein powder. I need to buy some almond butter to try. I also have one I make with milk, vanilla protein powder, a banana, half cup of oatmeal, and a bit of maple syrup. Sounds weird but I swear its super yum!

  3. Oh, obviously you have to blend the oatmeal one really well ๐Ÿ˜‰
