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!

    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.
