Superfood sports recovery milkshake


I’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors, enjoying daily morning tennis and then hitting the nearby trail for a run. This smoothie is great for post training replenishment. It’s full of superfoods that offer a lot of nutritional benefits: chia, maca, cocoa, bee pollen. And it doesn’t hurt that it tastes a little bit like a chocolate milkshake. 

Makes 2 shakes

2 tsp cocoa powder
1 to 2 tsp maca powder
2 tsp bee pollen
1 tbsp maple syrup-optional
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 large frozen bananas, broken into pcs
1 cup organic cow’s milk (add more if the blender needs it, I like to use Foxhill’s local Chocolate milk for extra flavor) or almond milk

Blend. Done.
