We all know that caffeine is brilliant for helping you train harder for longer. What a lot of people don’t realise is that coffee is also a great muscle recovery drink. Not only will it give you the boost you need to carry on your day after a workout, it’s also awesome at quickly replenishing the glycogen levels in your muscles. High levels of glycogen mean you’ll be able to perform at higher intensity the next day – ideal!
Add some natural caffeine in to your post-workout recovery mix with this super tasty and super effective post-workout coffee and protein recipe, a favourite from the team at TrueStart Coffee.
- 2 handfuls of chia seeds soaked overnight in 225g of vanilla almond milk.
- 1-2 scoops/sachets of TrueStart Coffee mixed with 200ml of water.
- 1 scoop of protein powder (we like the chocolate flavour for this one)
- Handful of ice cubes
Blend in a blender until you have a creamy consistency - about 15 seconds is fine.
