"I usually like to drink this in the morning within 30-60 minutes of working out," Myprotein athlete Charissa Littlejohn says of her chocolate-banana drink. "The protein is great for recovery, the oats digest slowly so you receive a steady release of sugar into the bloodstream, and the banana is a fast-acting carb that replenishes glycogen and helps your body recover faster." Add a dollop of nut butter for that extra creaminess and a serving of healthy fats!
