Nutrition for Runners: Peanut Butter Recovery Smoothie

I find making smoothies a great way to make a recovery drink with protein following a long run. This past weekend, after my latest 30 km run, I came up with the following smoothie since we did not have any frozen fruit left to use and I had to use other ingredients.

It was easy to make. All I needed was 2 cups of milk, 1/4 cup of peanut butter, 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 scoop of protein powder, a handful of ice cubes and a touch of left over chocolate sauce we had from a fruit tray.

I was quite pleased with the result. It certainly tasted good after a long run.
