5 Post-Workout Drinks That Are Just as Delicious as They Are Healthy
Let's get real here—the only thing that motivates us to work out is knowing we have a post-sweat sesh smoothie waiting for us when we're done.
Who doesn't love a decadent chilled beverage? And better yet, a guilt-free offering chock-full of nutrients?
Because we love a delicious sweet treat as much as the next person, we've rounded up our fave healthy options. Keep reading for five post-workout drinks that are just as delicious as they are healthy.
Raw Generation Vanilla Cashew Protein Smoothie: $99.99 (18 bottles)
Unfortunately, Raw Generation smoothies and juices can only be purchased in bulk, but they're well worth the price tag—which, in fact, comes to less than $6 per bottle. Not only are the brand's Vanilla Cashew Protein smoothies filling, but they're absolutely delicious, especially if you have a sweet tooth but want to eat clean. With pure plant protein, antioxidant-rich superfoods and healthy fats, you can't go wrong with this flavor, or their Peanut Butter or Cacao Hemp, which can be purchased all together in a variety pack.
HUM Raw Beauty Green Superfood Coconut & Pineapple Tropical Infusion: $39 (tub)
This all-natural blend from popular HUM Nutrition helps increase energy while radiating the skin and boosting metabolism. It includes more than 30 superfoods and satisfies the sweet tooth guilt-free. Just add a serving to your blender with ice and almond milk, and you're good to go!
Moon Juice Chocolate Adaptogen Protein Collagen: $50 (tub)
We love all things Moon Juice because, aside from filling us up with nutrients galore, their powders also affect our moods (in the best ways possible). This particular blend is a brown rice protein that's bio-fermented, ketogenic and adaptogenic. Fortified with Shatavari, Ashwagandha and Maca, it enhances energy, stamina and drive. Plop a serving into your blender with ice and almond milk, and call it a day!

Hush & Hush PlantYourDay Blend: $60 (tub)
This self-proclaimed tub of "decadent chocolate vanilla flavor" is everything you could possibly want in a post-workout powder. Not only is it a truly delicious formula that will detoxify your insides, but it's also jam-packed with plants, vitamins and proteins. The ingredients list is overwhelming, including everything from pea and pumpkin protein to goji berry and açaí extract. Those are just a few of approximately 20 all-natural components of this powerful blend. To get the most satisfaction for your tastebuds, we highly recommend adding this to your blender with almond milk and ice. You won't be disappointed!
The Slender Blend Cookies & Cream Shake: $46.99 (pack)
Clearly, the brand had us at Cookies & Cream. We immediately thought there must be some mistake because there's no way such a decadent flavor could actually be good for us! Welp, sure enough, this post-workout shake is packed with protein, pre and probiotics, vitamin C and essential B vitamins. There's also no added sugar—consider us sold! Now just add the necessary serving to a blender with ice and almond milk, and you have one of our favorite delights.
