chocolate-protein-shake-223x300[1]Do you like Arby’s Jamocha shakes?  I do!  If you like the combined taste of chocolate and coffee, I’ve got a protein shake recipe for you.

Chocolate Almond Recovery Shake

 The carbs in this shake drive nutrients into your muscle cells, speeding their growth.  They also replenish energy stores, ensuring you’ll perform your best at your next workout.

  • ½ cup skim milk
  • 1 Tbsp instant coffee
  • 10 unsalted almonds
  • 1 Tbsp lecithin granules
  • 2 packets (2 g) stevia or other sugar alternative
  • 1 cup crushed ice or 6-8 ice cubes
  • 2 level scoops chocolate whey protein powder

Put all of the ingredients except the ice and protein powder into a blender.  Blend on high until fully mixed.  With the blender on medium, add the ice and protein powder.  Increase the speed to high and blend until smooth.  Makes one serving.
