Recovery Mocktail: Choco–Peanut Butter Fix
This smoothie may seem simple, but it’s packed with essential nutrients to replenish what your body lost through sweat and help rebuild muscle.
This post-run smoothie combines the classic flavors and chocolate and peanut butter to deliver some serious nutritional power. Peanut butter supplies protein, magnesium, and zinc, and, according to Staci Lupberger, RD, avocado is “a good source of potassium—an electrolyte needed for fluid balance,” as well as being an unsaturated fat that will help you feel full. “I love to incorporate avocados into my spiritfrees,” says recipe creator and bartender Julia Momose. “They provide a lush texture and soft, fruity notes. In this smoothie, the avocado is the perfect vehicle to carry rich chocolate notes.”
