share. learn. thrive!

In honor of this weekend’s Vancouver Marathon – which Vega is attending – today’s recipe is all about recovery. After a race or intense training session, optimize recovery by having a snack within the first 45 minutes. Choose one that is easily digestible and consists mostly of simple carbohydrates. After you’ve pushed yourself, your body is too tired to work at heavy digestion—refuel it with liquid or near-liquid snacks, like whole-food puddings or a recovery drink.

This recover pudding is ease to make, easy to store and delicious.

• 2 bananas
• 1 cup blueberries
• ½ cup soaked almonds
• ¼ cup ground flaxseed
• ¼ cup hemp protein (or chocolate Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer)
• ¼ roasted carob powder
• 2 tsp ground rooiboos (ground finely in a coffee grinder)
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• ¼ tsp sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Makes 2 servings.

Good luck with the race!

I made this after an 11 mile run this past weekend and it's crazy filling!  I ate half the batch and was too full to eat lunch, but at least I knew I got plenty of protein, carbs, and good fats.  My legs didn't hurt much at all the next day, so I'm guessing the recovery pudding did its job.  It tasted pretty good too!

I can't find roobios leaves, can I buy the tea bags and open them up?

My son and I whipped this up yesterday... but we didn't have soaked almonds. I highly recommend soaking them, since our pudding ended up being grainy. Also, we forgot about the whole eat-it-*after*-a-workout thing... we just ate it for breakfast. I thought it was super yummy, but my 4-year-old and 6-year-old weren't into the grainy texture. We'll try it again!

Has anyone tried it with the Natural flavored Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer?

This looks Ab-Fab Delicious!!! I love pudding. Going to give this a try and see how it tastes after a rigorous Ashtanga Yoga practice
