Homemade Recovery Drinks


I put these together for some athletes I worked with recently. These can be used as a breakfast drink on the go, for recovery after training/exercise or as a mid afternoon snack.  


INSTRUCTIONS:
Combine ingredients in a blender and mix for 30-60 seconds.
Skimmed Milk Powder can be replaced with a good quality whey protein powder to further increase protein content.
