Post Workout Shake- Quick and Delicious!

It is important to refuel your muscles with protein within 45 minutes of your workout.  Adding a banana will help your body speed the process of getting the protein to your muscles and start the recovery process.
Thought I would share my quick post workout shake recipe:
2 scoops Sun Warrior Vegan Protein blend (note I am not vegan, but I can't process whey protein)
1 tbsp. organic coconut oil (the jar pictured was $15 at Costco!)
1/2 frozen banana
1 1/2 cups water
Blend till smooth and enjoy!

Feel free to share your favorite post workout recipe!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Sounds Yummy! I'm definitely going to try this one!

  2. How do I know if I can't process whey protein?

  3. How do I know if I can't process whey protein?

    1. Laina, That is a great question. I have a sensitivity to dairy products. I get an upset stomach and I get really bloated. When I was drinking whey my stomach would hurt and be so bloated I looked pregnant. I switched to a plant based protein after that and I don't experience that any more. I have used Arbonne protein and also the Sun Warrior Raw Blend. It takes some getting used to but I love it now. Do you feel that you may have a problem processing whey? Do you experience the same symptoms? I look forward to hearing back from you!
