When you're on the go and don't have time to cook, protein shakes are a great meal replacement or post-workout recovery option. We know it all too well: you wake up at 6am to get your workout in, and by the time you're done showering, you barely have time to musk up and eat a healthy meal.
We're here to help, with the shake recipe that is. Check out this sweet and salty chocolate shake courtesy of our friends at Vega. It's quick, tastes great and has avocado to add healthy fats.
Preparation: blend until smooth.
Our friend Ben, a plant-based Ironman athlete, sent us this vegan cookie recipe
that you can make with Skratch Lab's Cookie Mix
Ben wrote: "As an avid consumer of Skratch’s hydration products, I was not only excited to see them launch their first food product, but a food product that could be made vegan. This recipe for Skratch’s cookie mix is 100% plant-based and tastes amazing. Finding the motivation for my long rides is no longer a problem as I know these cookies await during and after the ride!"
- 1 package Skratch Labs Cookie Mix
- 1/2 cup organic apple sauce
- 1.5 tbsp coconout oil
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup raspberries
Pre-heat oven to 350. Line a 9×9 baking tin or a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, combine cookie mix, apple sauce, coconut oil (melted) and chocolate chips. Stir with a spatula to combine until the mix is thoroughly combined (add applesauce as needed to the extent it’s still dry and too clumpy). Spread the mix out on the baking tin (or make into cookies) about 1/4 inch thick in order to cook all the way through. Add the raspberries on top and gently press into the mix. Cook for 35-40 minutes until golden brown (cooking tim will ultimately depend on the thickness). Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting. Wrap and freeze for your next ride!
