For the past few weeks, I’ve been getting my workouts done in the morning rather than waiting until after work and I’ve been enjoying it more than I expected. While I’ve been a morning person for a while, I typically used my morning to enjoy coffee and get more blog related things done. Now I’m waking up a bit earlier and starting the day with a sweat session. It means I don’t have to worry about life getting busy or other things popping up and getting in the way of my daily workout.
I’ve always been a breakfast person, but now I get to the breakfast table and I’m starving. I know my body needs a little extra protein in the morning after a hard workout so I’ve been adding protein into my workout recovery smoothies.
So here’s one of my favorite workout recovery shakes!
- 1 scoop EAS Chocolate Whey protein
- 1 tsp chocolate hazelnut butter
- ½ banana or avocado
- ½ cup almond milk
- 4 large ice cubes
- Stevia or sweetener to taste
- Cacao nibs (optional)
- Add everything except the cacao nibs to the blender and blend until smooth!
- Sprinkle with cacao nibs on top.
- Serve immediately.
All you need are a handful of ingredients. If you don’t have any chocolate hazelnut butter, you can just use a teaspoon of peanut butter or leave it out all together.
Put it all in your blender and blend on high until smooth. You’ll see little specs of the cacao nibs in there! I love the texture they add.
Pour and serve immediately!
The EAS protein powder has 30g of protein which is perfect after a workout! I tend to buy whey protein because I think it has the best flavor in my shakes. I picked mine up at Walmart and I like that EAS tells you exactly what’s in it (vs. a “proprietary blend” where they don’t disclose what exactly is in it.) FYI- it’s in the Health & Beauty section, not the food section. (I walked around all the grocery isles until I finally spotted it in the health section!)
I like that there’s no added sugars or fillers, so I’m a fan of that! In fact, you might even see this protein powder on TV! Check out the New NBC Show S.T.R.O.N.G where EAS® products will be featured on the June 2nd episode. (9pm EST 8pm CST)
