Cherries ‘N Cream Milkshake

Serves: 1

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!! In honor of my race yesterday (full details to come on Wednesday with all my eats! ;)) I am posting the ‘Cherries N Cream Milkshake’ that I used as my recovery shake after all of my long runs during training! You have seen the pictures posted on my What I Ate Wednesday posts for a few weeks now and I have had a ton of requests for this super quick shake! So, as promised, here it is! :)

Cherries ‘N Cream Milkshake

Fit Ingredients

  • 1c coconut milk (I used the carton kind)
  • 1c frozen cherries
  • 1 scoop vanilla* casein protein powder (can sub whey, but casein is thicker)
  • 3oz low fat, low sodium ricotta cheese**
  • Glutamine powder, optional
  • BCAA’s powder, optional
  • Stevia, optional (I did not use it since my protein and cherries were sweet enough)

*Can sub chocolate protein powder here, which would be amazing too!

**Can sub cottage cheese or greek yogurt

  • Blender

Directions

1. Add milk and ricotta to the blender and give it a quick mix.

2. Add in your protein powder and cherries (and stevia/supplements if using) and blend until well mixed.

3. Serve in a beautiful glass (or protein shaker ;)) with a milkshake spoon or straw!

This shake is absolutely delicious!! And extremely quick and easy! The reason why I drank it post long run was to aid in the recovery of my muscles! Here is the reason behind some of the components in the shake:

  • Cherries/Cherry Juice is proven to help athletes recover 90% quicker after a tough workout (and who doesn’t want to be back in the gym ASAP)
  • Protein Powder also helps aid in the growth of your muscles and recovery if taken within 20-40 minutes post workout. (As a side note, casein is best to have at night since it is a slow digesting protein and whey protein is better immediately after a workout, however, I would crave casein after my long runs because it is thicker and more satiating than whey.)
  • Glutamine Powder helps runners with muscle recovery and development in between long runs. Also, marathons can compromise your immune system, so glutamine helps strengthen your immune system which aids in the prevention of overuse and injury.
  • BCAA’s aid in the prevention of muscle breakdown after an intense workout and help prevent soreness.

Cherries ‘N Cream Milkshake

This shake is so thick and creamy I would eat part of it with a spoon and drink the rest! I also make this shake a lot (with whey protein) after a lifting routine!
