Cooking with JP!

by JP Severin

Recovery is one of the major focuses of nutrition in pretty much all sports. That being said, I have been working tirelessly to develop a recovery drink that tastes like the first time you heard the Beatles, and will have you feeling like Crowie or Ms. Wellington for your next monster session. The things I do for you, bloggers.

First, a shout out to George Washington Carver for the creation of peanut butter. We are all forever in your debt. This shake will blow Jamba Juice and Baskin Robbins out of the water like a depth charge. And yes, you can all now begin addressing me as Dairy King.

Peanut Butter Assault on your Senses:

* 2 tbsp peanut butter

* 5 Ice cubes

* 1 frozen banana

* 1 tbsp sugar (or to taste)

* 1/2 cup of soy or regular milk

* 1/2 cup of water

Oh, and don't make this if you have peanut allergies. To be fair though, you will probably think it's worth the hives. If you have peanut allergies, then substitute the peanut butter for 2 tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder or chocolate syrup. Other peanut abled people can combine the chocolate with the peanut butter for a peanut butter cup smoothie!
