Matt makes me a protein smoothie every morning with yogurt, fresh oj, banana, 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) and 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?
