All you need are three ingredients to make the most delicious post-workout, protein-packed drink there is —> cold brew + unsweetened almond milk + protein powder.
A few weeks ago Linley and I had our good friend Jamie over for a full day of Fit Foodie shadowing. She just started a food blog called So Happy You Liked It and there’s not better way to learn about blogging than to just immerse yourself in one. She got the entire experience…
- a morning workout at Switch
- a brainstorm session
- a kitchen session
- a photography session
No day is the same at Fit Foodie HQ, but every day includes 2 things: laughing and learning something new. The one thing Lin and I learned from Jamie that day was how to make the best post-workout drink on the planet. We’ve literally made this every morning since and I’ve been excited to share this simple, yet delicious recipe on the blog. It’s even Mark approved thank you very much.
Today we’re partnering with our loves at Silk. As I’m writing this I just realized that you could pretty much use any Silk flavor out there for the almondmilk part. OMG THE DARK CHOCOLATE ALMONDMILK flavor would be so amazing. OR THE CHOCOLATE CASHEW MILK. Apparently I’m currently craving chocolate. Why did I not think of this 3 weeks ago?
Anyways, this drink so simple yet so necessary for post-workout refuel. Linley, Mark, and I are going strong in our Switch 8-Week Challenge and we’ve been extra careful about making sure to protein up post-workout. Most days I eat breakfast before my workout, so something light, refreshing, and caffeine-amped is what I’m craving after my workout. This recipe literally calls for three things:
- cold brew
- almond milk
- protein powder
Like I mentioned above, you can literally use any Silk flavor your heart desires. For this particular recipe, we used Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. You can pretty much find cold brew anywhere and everywhere these days, which is great. We used a cold brew concentrate and only needed 2 oz. for great flavor. Protein powder-wise, when Jamie made this for us the first time she used a whey based powder, however in this recipe, I used a plant-based. My favorite? Aloha Vanilla. That stuff is so good and works perfectly in this recipe!
