7 High Protein Cocktails for after a Workout ...


Whether you’ve just finished a half-marathon or sweated through another grueling P90X workout, you’ll need a high protein cocktail to refuel and perk you up. Wondering about my choice of words, “cocktail” rather than “drink”? Well, who says high-protein drinks have to be boring or ordinary or anything short of cocktail fabulousness? If you agree that a high protein post-workout drink doesn’t have to be manly or bland, keep reading. Here are 7 high protein cocktails to enjoy after a workout.

1. Berry Flaxseed Cocktail

I have a thing for flaxseed, and once you try this high protein cocktail, you will too. The proportions on this smoothie are a little flexible, so experiment with it until you find exactly the right combination of ingredients for you.

Ingredients: ½ cup low-fat or no-fat Greek yoghurt (and berry flavor will do), 2 tablespoons of whole or ground flaxseeds, ½ cup to ¾ cup of frozen or fresh mixed berries, and ¼ cup to ½ cup of no sugar added mixed fruit juice.

To make the cocktail: Place everything into a blender and mix until smooth. If you’re unhappy with the consistency, add a few cubes of ice. Garnish with a few raspberries and serve in your favorite cocktail glass. Enjoy roughly 25 grams of protein, with a healthy dose of fiber, calcium and antioxidants thrown in for good measure.
