I seriously cannot say “chocolate milk has muscle,” without wanting to strike a bodybuilder pose.
Go ahead, laugh. I am.
I meant to add this to my 10k training update post, but … I forgot. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. In fact, I went to the grocery store this week to get chocolate milk – it was one of only TWO thins on my list – and I forgot it. And then almost forgot it on the second trip.
Yeah, I need help.
So, anyway, why the post on chocolate milk?
So, in honor of chocolate milk, I made a super yummy smoothie after my run. It’s high in protein – which I’ve heard is helpful for recovering after a workout.
1 cup chocolate milk
1/2 cup Oiko’s vanilla greek yogurt
handful of frozen strawberries
protein powder (I like Amazing Meal from Amazing Grass)
ice or chia seeds (if you want it thicker)
Blend and enjoy! Just be sure to enjoy it before it gets knocked over by a mischievous cat.
