Post-Workout Shake

· ·

One of my favorite ways to refuel after a workout is to drink a cold protein shake. There are so many different ways to make shakes and I think I’ve finally perfected mine! Protein shakes are a fun way to experiment – throw in new vegetables (I recently started adding cucumber), try a new flavor of protein powder (hello Quest Cookies and Cream!), or substitute water with unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk.

Below is one of the ways I make a post-workout shake.


  • 7 ice cubes
  • 1 cup skim milk (sometimes I use water, but usually use milk for calcium)
  • 1.5 handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 handful of kale
  • Sliced cucumber
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1 banana (frozen or ripe)
  • 1/4 cup nonfat Chobani greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I typically use Chocolate Quest Nutrition powder).


Oops – missing the banana and kale


  • Throw everything in a blender, and BLEND!
  • Sprinkle chia seeds on top for extra protein and fiber (and to make it more photogenic) 😉




I do switch it up sometimes. Every now and then I add a tablespoon of nut butter, PBFit, or even Chocolate PB2. Like I said before, I have substituted water for milk, though I prefer milk. You could even add in frozen strawberries or blueberries.

How do you make your protein shakes?

  1. Mmmm sounds good! My current go to is one scoop vega vanilla protein and green powder…a banana… frozen blueberries, kale and water 🙂 I also love this one for a morning wake me up: 1 tsp green matcha powder, one frozen banana, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup homemade almond milk, 1 tbsp raw honey…

    1. Hi Jen,
      That sounds delicious, thank you for sharing. I want to try your recipe soon! I have heard so much about matcha powder, but have never had it.
      Thanks again for your idea 🙂
