After a long weekend of partying and barbecues (read: Memorial Day Weekend), it’s important to give your body a chance to recover. This doesn’t necessarily mean you ought to do a cleanse of some sort. Instead, by putting good, clean energy and protein into your body, you’ll feel far better by the week’s end. This smoothie combines 20+ grams of protein, as well as clean energy from the coffee and the sugar and potassium in the banana. Plus, it tastes like a coffee milkshake.

What you’ll need:
1/2 cup black iced coffee
1/2 banana
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup skim milk
Ice

Directions:
Break up the banana and place it in the bottom of the blender. Pour over the coffee, the milk, and protein powder. Add ice, blend until smooth, and serve in a 12-ounce glass with a straw.
