7 Tasty Shakes To Have Immediately After The Gym

7 Tasty Shakes To Have Immediately After The Gym
By Gavan Casey Updated

Let's be honest: we've all left the gym, picked up our shakers and sculled whatever protein-water-milk concoction we spent 5 minutes preparing at home as we rushed out the door the same morning.

Is it satisfying? Kind of. At least you feel like you're maximising your daily gains by not drinking something sugary or fizzy. But wouldn't it be nice to drink something nice, for a change?

We've thrown together our seven favourite post-workout shake recipes for simple-to-make, tasty gym shakes which will leave you feeling unstoppable. We also believe we might have a future in naming shakes if this whole sports thing doesn't work out.
