From the September 2012 issue of Runner’s World
Contributing chef Pam Anderson blends up this healthy makeover of a classic drink for a pre- or post-run treat
Plain Greek yoghurt has roughly twice the protein and half the sugar of plain traditional yoghurt. Cherries contain antioxidants that help reduce post-run inflammation. “To add crunch, stir in chocolate wafers,” says Anderson.
1 cup frozen cherries
1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1 cup chocolate soymilk
¼ cup Greek yoghurt
2 teaspoons honey
¼ teaspoon almond extract
4 chocolate wafers, crumbled
Place all the ingredients – except the chocolate wafers – in a blender; process until creamy smooth. Divide between two glasses. Top each with a portion of crumbled chocolate wafers. Serves two.
