banana (2 oz, about 1/2 banana)
strawberry (4oz, try frozen)
Vanilla Whey

My post workout recovery drink is basically the same as yours, except I use Green Tea in place of water. But yeah, banana, frozen strawberries, and Vanilla Whey. Sometimes I'll even put a teaspoon of creatine in there, and if I want an added treat I'll add a tablspoon of peanut butter.

I was adding cottage cheese for extra protein but I don't eat enough of it and it goes bad rather quickly, even when only using half of it and freezing the rest.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
