Post workout cocoa smoothie

Food & Recipes door thijs

If you've just finished a workout and you’re anything like me – you’re hungry. I’m not always able to eat right after a work out, so a shake is the perfect solution. This cocoa smoothie is the perfect combination of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and electrolytes.

What do you need for one big shake?

  • 2 bananas
  • 200 ml water (bit less than a cup)
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 dates
  • 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients in a blender. If the consistency is too thick for you, add more water. When done, put it in cup or bottle and take it with you. Drink it right after your workout. This cocoa smoothie is also really good at home when you heat it up in a small pan... Yum.

Go on now, kick some ass today at the gym and drink this chocolate cocoa smoothie afterwards.
