Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Ingredients

    * (1) Banana, fresh, medium-sized (7" to 7-7/8" long, or about 110 - 120g)
    * (2 tbsp.) Whey Protein Isolate Powder (about 10g)
    * (1 tbsp.) Nestle Nesquik Chocolate Syrup (20ml, or about 20g)
    * (300g) Milk, 1%

Directions

1a. Go for a nice run at least an hour in length. If you object to this step, skip to step 1b. Hehehe! ;-)
1b. Combine all ingredients in a blender (or a big / tall glass if you have an immersion blender!), and blend thoroughly.
2. Pour into a big glass, and enjoy your post-run recovery drink! So good, you won't believe it's good for you! :)

  • The key to recovery is nutrient timing - you must drink this within 15 mins of exercise to help replenish muscle glycogen stores, slow down cortisol release, and to rebuild muscles. Go to http://www.puresport.us/about to learn more about nutrient timing - 7/26/08
