[Week 1] Monday & Friday - Rest Day Recipes (Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie)

You've got to love a training plan that starts off with a rest day! Since Tuesday will be my first long distance run, I want to make great post-run meals ahead of time since I'll probably be too tired once I get home. I'll be making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie since it has complex carbs AND protein. Plus its chocolate peanut butter...hello! Here’s the protein breakdown of my new favorite smoothie: 6 oz greek yogurt → 18 grams 3/4 cup skim milk → 6 grams 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter → 4 grams The yogurt adds a ton of protein to the shake and should be pretty easy on your stomach, which can be sensitive after a run. Here's the recipe, enjoy! Ingredients: 1 large banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 6 oz Chobani 0% Greek Yogurt (or 2%, flavored or unflavored) 3/4 cup skim milk (or your favorite kind of nondairy or dairy milk) 1 Tablespoon honey, maple syrup, or agave 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (any kind you like) Directions: Put all of the ingredients into the blender, in the order listed, and blend on high until thick and smooth. I would start with only 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder, blend, and then add 1 more for a stronger chocolate taste. You may need to stop and stir/scrape down the sides of the blender a few times. Drizzle glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup (optional) and enjoy! If you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you may leave out the honey. Add more peanut butter for a stronger peanut butter taste. Add more milk to make the smoothie thinner, if desired. Add 1 cup of your favorite greens for added nutrition.
