Hello! Here’s a super easy post-workout smoothie recipe… It’s a delicious mix of chocolate, protein, caffeine and happiness (because of the chocolate). You might have heard that chocolate milk is a great post-run recovery drink … and I’m taking it up a notch with a kick of caffeine. Boom!
After a workout you should aim to refuel with a snack or meal that’s about a 4:1 carbs to protein ratio. Chocolate milk hits the mark and I’ve been drinking it for years after long runs and races (they have it at a lot of the races I’ve done!). And I added in frozen coffee ice cubes and some vanilla yogurt for extra caffeine and creaminess. It’s such an easy smoothie recipe – but so good.
