Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

NUTRITION FOR TRAINING

This year I have jumped back on the 1/2 marathon race bandwagon.  I took a few years off but have decided to do some again which means no messing around with nutrition and training.

Protein shakes are the best!  They are low calorie and allow me to get extra protein that my muscles need when I can’t humanly consume it through food alone.  I love my protein shakes and I have a few go-to’s but I really wanted to get a bit more variety so I made this one and I love it.

The recipe is quite easy:

For hydration:     1 C coconut water

For iron:               1 C baby spinach

For good fats:      1 Tbsp peanut butter (I make my own)

For protein:         1 scoop protein powder

For yum:              1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

For potassium:   1/2 banana

That’s it!  Use a good blender to blend it all together.  Tastes like a peanut butter cup.
