#FitnessFriday: Post Workout Homemade Recovery Drink

Just like a physical warm-up and cool-down before and after a workout your body needs fuel. A good run or workout leaves your body in need of hydration and it is key to have something to refuel. You can put what you like in your drink, be sure to include ingredients high in carbohydrates, protein, and electrolytes.

I found this easy to make homemade recovery drink recipe on Women’s Running’s site to toss together in a shaker bottle and keep  you from being #THIRSTY.


4 oz fruit juice
6 oz water
2 Tbs high quality protein powder (Try Mini V Whey Powder)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
combine in shaker bottle,shake  and enjoy!
