I have to buy a gallon of chocolate milk each week because the kids drink half a gallon and I use the other half for these delicious chocolate milk, banana and peanut butter shakes that I drink post-workout for a refuel.
Chocolate milk is known to help replenish after a hard workout, or strenuous activity because it contains double the amount of carbohydrates and protein that you’ll find in regular milk or sugary drinks like Gatorade. It also has a high water content to recover hydration. Add that with your feel-good banana fruit and a tablespoon of peanut butter for additional protein and you’ll bounce back from that exhausting run in no time!
- 1 cup low-fat chocolate milk
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter or almond butter
- 1 medium size banana
- 5 ice cubes
- Combine all ingredients into a blender for 60 seconds max. Serve chilled.
