Blueberry Cobbler Post-Workout Smoothie

by jenny sansouci on January 8, 2015

Gonna keep this short. Real short. Just gonna deliver the goods and get outta here! #smoothiedealer

Last night I wrote a post called “What’s The Best Food To Eat After A Workout?

The main finding was that it’s a good idea to eat carbs with protein after a workout. You can read the post to find out why. I ain’t no glycogen muscle expert. But this smoothie’s got both. What what!

I created this Blueberry Cobbler post-workout smoothie based on the results of that post. Ok, ok, ok, I did steal the name of the smoothie from the Barry’s Bootcamp smoothie bar. And the inspiration for the recipe. I changed it though (I removed bananas, and used almond butter instead of peanut butter, and added a pinch of sea salt).

So here you go! You can use whatever protein powder you want but I really like this one. Using 2 scoops of it will give you about 21g post-workout protein. There are only about 10g carbs in 1/2 a cup of blueberries (and 4g carbs in the whey protein) so if you want more carbs after your workout you can double up on the berries!

Blueberry Cobbler Post-Workout Smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 scoops Tera’s Whey vanilla bourbon grass-fed whey protein
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • small pinch sea salt

Blend and drink! SO GOOD!

Hey Jenny ~ I love seeing new posts from you daily! & um, blueberry cobbler smoothie? Yes, please! (& thank you) :)

I don’t know if you’re looking for blog topics, but I would love to hear your take on keeping a healthy routine/schedule & being productive while being self-employed and working “remotely” without external motivation.

Many years ago, I worked from home and couldn’t quite get the hang of establishing a healthy routine, it left me very depressed and instilled a fear that I could never attempt to do it again. I would definitely benefit from hearing others perspective either here or in a blog! Your input is greatly appreciated!

Hey Vanessa! Thanks for reading, I really appreciate it. I’ll definitely write a blog about that! It’s difficult and my most treasured tip in that arena is to have a great support system. I don’t know what I’d do without my entrepreneurial friends to check in with, and going to conferences where other entrepreneurs hang out. It’s absolutely crucial.

Hey Jenny. This smoothie looks great :) I want to try it but I avoid dairy most of the time. I have never touched whey protein but this brand looks okay because it’s grassfed. Curious- do you digest it well? I’ve tried plant based protein powders and they either taste bad or have weird additives.
Thanks!

Hi hello! This looks delish. Have you ever tried gelatin? I just bought some some Great Lakes brand beef gelatin on amazon (grassfed cows and I think organic!) and started adding that to my smoothies instead of protein powder. 11g protein in a tablespoon! It doesn’t really have a taste but it does thicken up any smoothie so I add extra water or almond milk.

I do fine with whey protein most of the time! They also have a really good goat’s whey protein, you may do better with that one!

I see on amazon there is a tears whey with no “rBGH” and one with it…do you know what the means and which would be a better choice?

It’s a growth hormone. :( Buy the one without it!! <3

The one you have linked aboard doesn’t specifically say that. When I looked around further I saw one that specified “no rbgh”, does the vanilla bourbon one you linked above contain that hormone then? Just want to make sure I buy the best :)

Hi! Yes, I just checked the FAQ on their site and all of the organic products are also r-BGH free. :)

Q: Are your organic products also rBGH free?

A: Yes. All of our organic products are rBGH-free, which means that cows are not injected with artificial hormones.

Hands down, my now favorite smoothie – this tastes amazing. Found this recipe on your site a few weeks ago and now, I can’t keep blueberries in the house because I am inhaling them via daily smoothies of this recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

Ummmmm…. why did it take me so long to try this? I saved it a few weeks ago but just had it after my cardio class… I actually said “sweet Jesus” out loud – it was THAT good. I can’t wait to make this again (probably this afternoon :) Love your blog!!!
