Fruit and Yogurt Energy Shake

February 2010
Replenish your energy after a cardiovascular workout with this complex carb-rich drink. Yogurt adds protein and calcium while fruit adds natural sweetness and vitamin C for tired, sore muscles. Enjoy this shake within 30 – 60 minutes after exercise, when your body is best able to repair itself and replenish the energy you’ve spent. Experiment with different fruits for new flavors.

1 cup frozen sweet cherries
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup pomegranate cherry juice
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 banana, peeled

Place all ingredients in a blender, puree until smooth.
