Shake it!

After a long hard work out day, if I have time, I skip the Ultragen and make my special post workout cocktail.  I kinda stole the idea from the Olympic Training Centers oatmeal recipe for athletes…

Power Recovery Shake
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (50 calories)
1 ripe banana (100 calories)
1 tablespoon of almond butter (95 calories)
1 scoop of whey protein (100 calories)
1 heaping tablespoon of dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder (20 calories)
1 half cup of frozen blueberries (35 calories)
Ice as desired

Total calories:  400 calories, 24 g protein, 14 g fat, 44.5 g Carbs, no added sugar!

If I am having a light training day I will drop the almond butter.  This drink really hits the spot and is tasty.  If you need more calories, you could supplement with some greek yogurt or an extra banana.  Enjoy!
