After an intense indoor soccer game last night, I decided to come home and have a nice recovery protein shake. I thought I would share this recipe because I have stayed faithful to it for about 6 months!
Any time I work my tail off in the gym or playing soccer, I try to have a protein shake within two hours to help with muscle recovery. I am such a chocolate lover that it is hard for me to explore other flavors of protein powder. So this shake recipe has been an all time favorite.
Here is what you will need:
- 6 oz Original or Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 Tbsp PB2
- 1 scoop Syntrax Nectar Sweets Chocolate Truffle
- 1 tsp Honey
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 Ice Cubes
- 1 tsp Steel Cut Oats (optional)
Add almond milk, yogurt, PB2, protein, honey, cinnamon, and ice into the blender.
Blend well for about 1 minute. I usually have to scrape the sides of my Ninja Professional Blender (NJ600) to make sure all of my protein and PB2 mixes well. Then blend for another 20-30 seconds.
Once finished, I pour it into a glass. If I had an intense soccer game or a more cardio based workout, I will add the steel cut oats on top for crunch. If it was more of a weight lifting day, I may leave the oats off.
And here is your finished product!
If you put this mixture in a bowl and freeze it for about 1 hour, it tastes almost sinful! I do this often and feel like I am getting a real treat!
