This shake tastes like an old-fashioned Yoo-Hoo from your childhood – but is packed with everything you need to effectively jumpstart recovery post-workout: hydration and electrolytes, and a mix of protein and easily-digestible carbs.
Bonus: it’s totally plant-based, and free of expensive protein powders, making it allergy-friendly, and gentle on even the most sensitive of stomachs!
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 medium frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 20 grams 85% dark chocolate (roughly 1/4, or 1–2 squares, of a bar. I used Trader Joe’s 85% Dark Chocolate Bar)
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup ice
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
