strawberry (4oz, try frozen)
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.
