Post Run Recovery Drink

Usually after every run, I have a post run recovery shake.  It is basically a protein smoothie and I can whip it up in about 3 minutes.  It is nutritious, delicious, and fast.  I’ve been drinking this concoction for a couple years now and believe it to be effective in helping the muscles recover after a hard run.  There are probably an infinite number of flavor combinations, but I prefer the banana protein powder, vanilla soy milk, and frozen mangoes.  The cost averages out to about $1.50 for 24 ounces.

Only 3 ingredients, GNC whey protein power, light Silk vanilla soymilk, and frozen mango chunks.

One scoop of banana flavored 100% GNC whey protein powder.

Add a couple cups of soy milk.

One cup of mango chunks.

Put it all on the blender.

Give it a swirl for about a minute.

Banana-Mango Protein Shake. Enjoy!


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.

    O man, that looks good, and simple. We make smoothies but they are very complicated 😉

    Hey, I got the Kettleworx set and started using it on your recommend. WOW. I did the Cardio 1, and when it flashed on the screen that there was a Set 2, I almost puked 😉 But I got throught it. It’s awesome 🙂 thanks for writing about it! And good luck in Kobe!

    • I think you’ll find Kettleworx very complementary to your running, it will really tighten up the core area. I also like it because it is a pretty comprehensive workout that takes about 20 minutes three times a week. I’ve been using it since March and it is pretty much is the only strength training program I use now.

      I’m praying Kobe will go well, the body doesn’t seem to be bouncing back as quickly as I was hoping, but I still have six days left to try and loosen up.
