THE BEST POST-WORKOUT RECOVERY SHAKE
- 1 banana
- 6 Medjool dates
- 1/2 cup oats
- Generous squeeze maple syrup
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 serving Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein by Nuzest
Logging enough training hours each week to be considered a part-time job not only requires enough fuel to get through each session, sometimes three a day, but the right fuel for optimal recovery. This simple post-exercise recovery shake is exactly what you need to optimize your training.
Without adequate recovery, it is almost impossible to back up day after day, session after session and perform at your best. Not only that, I still need to function at a high level through the day for my day job. That is where recovery shakes and protein powders become an important part for optimal recovery.
Morning sessions are usually my biggest session for the day and being breakfast, it is critical that I get off to the best possible start. This is where my post session shake has become so important. Not only does it allow me to get enough fuel in, it is also easy to hit all my macro-nutritional targets and it's very quick and easy. Just grab a blender, whip it out, and drink it right away or put it in a shaker cup to enjoy throughout your day.
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
- Note: I use Rich Chocolate as my preferred flavor, it is also quite nice with Smooth Vanilla or Wild Strawberry. Clean Lean Protein by Nuzest has some really amazing flavors, so I'd say try them all!
