Chocolate "Recovery Drink"

It's not dessert! Okay? It's my recovery drink! Electrolytes, antioxidants and what not! I'm sure! That's all I have to say about that. 

The Justifiable Chocolate Shake

2 frozen bananas
4 ice cubes
2 ½ tbs unsweetened natural cocoa
2 tbs peanut butter
1 cup almond milk
½ tsp vanilla

Throw your ingredients into your blender in the order they're listed. Pulse that sucker till it's smooth. Garnish with some raw cacao flakes and grab a straw. And a friend. There will be much shake. 

I'm not a nutritionist or an exercise scientist. I don't know if there are any real benefits, but this thing always makes me feel good after some strenuous physical activity. In fact, this dessert -I mean recovery drink- has become my new reason for exercising because it's just so delicious and nutritious. I think. Give it a whirl.


  1. Nice :) Good idea on the banana. I've been working on a justifiable chocolate shake myself. Trying to throw an avocado in there too.

  2. That doesn't sound bad. Half an avocado might work as a substitute for the peanut butter, if you're trying not to increase the volume of smoothie. Otherwise, I imagine it could be added on without altering the recipe. I might have to try that.
