Chocolate Fluid Recovery Shakes

By March 11, 2013Fitness, Fuel

After a morning of coaching and swimming, I set out to create a recovery shake with my Chocolate Fluid Recovery mix.  The inspiration was my boyfriend’s latest favorite, homemade chocolate-peanut butter frozen yogurt.

Yum.  I can feel the glycogen replenishment as I slurp.

The Chocolate Fluid Recoverizor

(print this recipe)

(serves 2)

2 bananas (I use 1 fresh, 1 frozen…it’s a texture thing).
4 scoops (about 4 heaping tablespoons) Chocolate Recovery Fluid, or other chocolate powder/cocoa.
1.5 c. plain greek yogurt (I use nonfat).
2 heaping T. peanut/almond/nut butter (I used a peanut-almond-pecan blend).
4 handfuls of ice.
1/2 c. almond/coconut/cow milk (I used almond).
*optional: cinnamon/nutmeg to taste

If you just can’t get enough Fluid, and enjoy coconut and dates, try this shake:
