I just came back from my run feeling famished. That was when I remembered my sister’s running post on drinking chocolate milk for a recovery drink (check out her Run Faster & Farther Facebook page for great tips!). And then I remembered that I am really tired from working late and tending to little people who wake me up. Chocolate milk wasn’t going to cut it. So I spiked my chocolate milk with coffee. And added yogurt for an extra boost. Feeling better already.
MOCHA RECOVERY DRINK
1/2 cup whole milk plain yogurt
1T cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 packet of Stevia (if you only have vanilla yogurt, eliminate the extra sweetener)
1 Starbucks Via packet
Combine all ingredients in the blender and drink within 20 minutes of a run.
