Have you ever had one of those days when you got through your workout and finished it okay but afterwards you were left feeling a bit flat? 

While some of us feel energised after a workout, sometimes you can end up feeling exhausted and ready for a sleep! Which can be a problem if it’s way too early to head to bed. On those days, you need something that is going to help your body recover post-workout AND give you back some energy. 

The delicious protein shake recipe I have for you today is just what you need. I’m sure the name alone will get your mouth watering — Cookies And Cream Protein Shake!

The cookies and cream flavour doesn’t have to come from a packet! You can make it using healthier ingredients, including bananas, hazelnut meal and dates. Another great thing about this shake (besides the rich flavour) is it gives a real nutritional kick — thanks to the protein in the yoghurt and oats and the healthy fats of the nut butter. 

This is a classic flavour combination that I know SO many people love, so I am really excited to be able to share this recipe with you all!
