Looking for an easy postrun snack? We paired with Silk Almondmilk for a helpful and quick solution.

Your body craves protein after a long run, and when you skip eating, your muscles don't have the nourishment needed for proper recovery. And the last thing you want to do after working out is spend time putting together a healthy snack. Keep it simple with this quick and easy smoothie solution. You can whip it up so fast for a delicious postrun drink.

Both bananas and avocados naturally have protein; bananas are high in carbohydrates and potassium while avocados offer healthy fats and on average four grams of protein per fruit. And a touch of honey adds to the tangy-sweet flavor of this after-run drink. I used an organic rice protein powder along with almond milk to really bump things up.

Notes

Go with plain almond milk and protein powder for a smooth flavor, or opt for vanilla or chocolate flavors for a fun combo of tastes.
