Protein Shake Recipe

Great recovery drink after a workout.


  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Filtered Water
  • 1 Cup frozen berries (I use frozen, unsweetened, sweet cherries)
  • 3 Tablespoons (1 heaping 1/8 cup scoop) Organic, pure hemp powder (contains 16g protein)


  1. Blend ingredients and drink after a workout.


If you need it sweeter, add pure grape juice concentrate (1-2 tablespoons). We have also made this shake with yogurt, but the hemp powder becomes gritty when yogurt is added.

I started working out to P90x videos daily – even before I felt “ready” to do so (whatever “ready means – right?). I didn’t have the right weights, our cupboards and refrigerator have been fairly sparse, and we didn’t have the Beachbody recovery shakes (nor were we ready to start buying them. This protein shake recipe has worked well as a homemade recovery drink.

In addition to being packed with protein, it is high in Omega Fatty Acids. Brain food! Muscle Food! Tastebud food! Busy person food! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
