After a tough workout, it’s important to get some protein into your body. A dose of protein in the first 30 minutes after exercise helps to heal micro-tears in muscles, making them stronger over time.
The best way to get a quick protein hit is to knock up a shake, or in the case of this recipe, a punch.
In creating this recipe, we’ve opted for protein-packing peanut butter and almond milk, along with an energy-boosting banana and everyone’s favourite superfood kale (don’t worry, you can’t taste it).
The result is a drink that provides 7g of protein for just 170 calories.
A glass of this post-workout and you’ll be fit and ready to go again in no time.
What you need:
150ml unsweetened almond milk
Handful of curly kale
1tbsp peanut butter
1tsp maple syrup
What you need to do:
Pop all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Easy!
