I discovered a really tasty post-workout smoothie last week: cocoa, almond butter, banana, milk and honey. The milk, banana and almond butter provide protein and electrolytes, making this smoothie an excellent pick-me-up after a work-out. The cocoa adds antioxidants and a rich chocolately taste. I usually skip the whipped cream, but once in a while, if I have some in my fridge, I splurge! Try topping it with sliced almonds, too.
