The Cold Brew Coffee Recovery Smoothie You Have To Try

By now you likely know you need to refuel after your long runs so that your body can start the recovery process. I often find that eating after a long run isn’t the easiest thing to do. I know I’m not alone because many of the runners I coach also struggle to eat immediately after a run. Since eating after a long run can sometimes be difficult, I often suggest having a smoothie. Smoothies are easier to digest and simple to make. The recipe I’m sharing with you today will all has the added benefit of giving you a post-long run pick-up too!

Cold Brew Coffee Recovery Smoothie


½ cup dry oatmeal

3 ounces cold brew coffee concentrate (I used Chameleon cold-brew)

3 ounces milk (dairy or non-dairy)

1 cup ice

1 banana

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

Tip: If you’re like me and don’t have a fancy blender start by blending the banana, milk and dry oatmeal. Once that is blended add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
