Post-Workout Recovery Drink Recipie

This works well for me, has about 50g of protein and 100g of high glycemic-index carbs. And it actually tastes pretty good.

  • 1 bannana
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup fruit juice
  • 1 Tbsp Dextrose
  • A pinch of ginger
  • 2 scoops of whey protein isolate (I use Isopure apple-melon)
  • 3/4 scoop of mild melon HEED
  • ice cubes and about 2 cups water

Put it in a blender and go. It foams up to quite a big volume initially but, after settling, should be enough to fill a 32 oz Nalgene. Put it in a cooler and drink it right after your ride. Perfect.

  1. I can vouch for the yumminess, although I have yet to have a long enough run to need one myself. It’s not going to replace jamba juice any time soon, but far better than most thick protein drinks on the market.
