There’s a Monster in the Kitchen!
I had good ‘ol hill repeats on the plan for my run this morning. I did about a 4.3 mile warmup and then 8 x 150m hill repeats. There was a street cleaner going down the streets, I think I got in his way…oops. Well, maybe I gave him a nice show 🙂
The splits are kind of weird to divide up so I’ll just forgo those today. I actually ended up running exactly 6.2 miles – a 10k!
After stretching and hip strengthening, it was time for my recovery food and to feature one of my “favorite things”.
Chocolate Graham Cracker Monster Recovery Smoothie
I have already posted a similar smoothie recipe, but this a slight variation
I’ll start off by saying that I have just a normal-joe blender, no fancy Vita-mix (which I do want to get someday…)
Bing bing! Is that Chocolate Amazing Grass I hear?
So blend up those ingredients!
After that’s well blended, I added 3 ‘chunks’ of banana that I pre-froze. It probably equals about 1/2 a banana’s worth.
It really tastes like a chocolate graham cracker. Back in the day, my favorite snack was 3-4 graham crackers crumbled up in a bowl with milk! This smoothie is a delicious and nutritious blend of protein, carbs, and fat along with plenty of nutrients, making it a perfect recovery snack or anytime snack! Enjoy 🙂 but watch out for green mustaches! And stay tuned for more “favorite things” to be featured!
