Many of you know <and love> shower shakes, but for those who need to get caught up on the greatness of shower shakes, this is for you! Shower shakes are recovery drinks that include the protein + some carbs that you need post-run/workout, shake up quickly, and take it with you in the shower to get your recovery started. Why take a drink in the shower? Because we are busy! I don’t usually have extra time in the morning to leisurely drink my shower shake after my run, so I hop in the shower with my shake. This can also be a car shake, work shake, kids activity shake… anything goes!

The great thing about shower shakes, is that you can tweak your recipe based on the ingredients you have and enjoy. This is NOT your full meal. This is part of your recovery meal. You will also need to add some carbs for the 2nd half of your meal – and maybe some fruit, healthy fat, etc. Requirements for a shower shake: Protein – 20-40g, Carbs – 15+ grams. Your requirements will depend on what you intend on eating for the 2nd half of your meal.

Below is my go-to shower shake recipe. Momentous whey protein is my favorite, and I LOVE Skratch Horchata <if you haven’t tried it, you should>. The Skratch Recovery Mix adds carbs <and some more protein> to help with recovery.

For athletes: Get your recovery started after your long run or workout - drink this within 1 hour of finishing your exercise, preferably within 30 minutes, especially if it was a hard one! Hit 100% of your protein needs + some carbs. Then, within the next 1 - 2 hours make sure to eat more carbs to restock those glycogen stores. 
For healthy eating: A shower shake is an easy way to get your protein in if you need more options or are running short on time. Drink this as part of your meal <provides protein + some carbs>. Add some fruit or veggies and 1-2 servings of whole grains.
