*You can change up the flavours however you like, but remember the basic principles of a good post-workout meal: high in protein + carb, minimal fat.
- Vanilla protein powder provides both flavour and protein to help repair your muscles.
- Banana and dates provide easily digestible carbs to help replenish glycogen stores, while the berries provide antioxidant power.
