Blackberry 'Recovery' Shake

On occasion it does in fact get over 85 degrees in Oregon, and when it does, no one knows what to do.  So, after a particularly long and hot run, my handsome co-conspirator suggested I make a shake along these lines.  It actually gave me superpowers for about two hours afterwards!  It's not particularly low in calories, carbs or fat, but it's not suppose to be.  Rather, it is packed with important nutrients, protein and electrolytes that you need to recover.  It's also good for breakfast!
Blackberry 'Recovery' Shake

Blackberries (1.5 cups)*
Almond Butter (1 tbsp.)
Honey (2 tsp)
Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
Coconut Extract (1 tsp)
Protein Powder (1/2 scoop or 10g)**
Ice (about 1 cup)

* You can use any kind of berry you like!
** I like vanilla


(1) Put berries, almond milk, almond butter, honey, vanilla, coconut extract and protein powder in the blender and blend until smooth.

(2) Add 1 cup of ice and blend again until frothy.  You can add more or less ice depending on how slushy or thick you want your shake.
