The Golden Hour: the precious 60 minutes after exercise that you have to replenish & refuel your body. It is a crucial step to your weight loss or overall health journey! Think of it as a part of exercising. You must give your body fuel in order to exercise & you must give your body fuel to recover. 

One of my favorite ways to recover is with a protein shake! Because I’m plant-based (I still eat eggs & always will), this is an important step for me in making sure I achieve my daily protein goals while consuming other essential nutrients, as well.

Ingredients

  • A serving of vegan chocolate protein powder (use whatever chocolate protein powder you prefer!)
  • 1 to 1.5 cups frozen cherriesD4AF03B0-CB43-45E9-A05C-34CF112084D3.JPG
  • 1/2 cup cashew yogurt (you can substitute with soy yogurt, almond yogurt, or 0% greek yogurt–check the label for added sugar, OR no yogurt if you like your shake to be a thinner consistency)e452574bd237cb684ffee1adb654099f_250x250
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp powdered almond or peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1-2 cups of water depending on your thickness preference
  • A few ice cubes

Directions

  1. Put the ingredients in your blender & blend, baby. Enjoy!

P.S. I try to drink mine slowly so it can digest more easily!
