The Best Post-Workout Shake


This is the best post-workout shake. It's delicious, nutritious, and filling — a perfect drink after a hard workout at the gym. I've been drinking it every morning for years after I finish my workout around 8 am, and I stay full until 11:30 am!

Prep Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
5 mins


  • 1 scoop whey protein powder

  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar (Optional)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • ½ cup frozen mixed berries

  • 1 medium banana

  • 1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter


  1. Layer protein powder, flax meal, cocoa powder, and brown sugar in a blender. Add almond milk, frozen berries, banana, and peanut butter. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.


I use a Nutri-Bullet as it's a perfect size and it works really well, but any blender will do.

Use low-fat milk for a thicker shake.
