Post-Workout Chocolate Almond Shake

Provided By:

Training can break down muscle protein, so it's vital you take in a decent amount of protein after a session to repair and regenerate muscles. The high-GI carbs help drive protein into the muscles, replenish depleted glycogen and speed the recovery process.

Ingredients
150ml almond milk
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1tbsp maple syrup
1 banana
2tbsp low-fat Greek-style yoghurt
1 drop vanilla extract

Directions
Blend the ingredients together in a blender.

Why you should have it
Almond milk contains muscle-building protein and is rich in magnesium, which is good at relaxing and relieving stiff muscles. Yoghurt, besides being a good source of protein and calcium, is rich in vitamin B12, which is needed for muscle growth and appetite control. Maple syrup contains quick-release carbs which help the body to refuel. It will also replenish glycogen reserves depleted by exercise, which will speed the recovery process and prevent fatigue.

Bananas contain B vitamins that can help build the red blood cells you need to recover after strenuous exercise. They will also help restore the body's potassium levels to rehydrate cells after a workout. Vanilla's rich flavour comes from powerful antioxidants that can reduce muscle soreness, improve digestion and strengthen the immune system.
