Plain Greek yogurt has roughly twice the protein and half the sugar of plain traditional yogurt. Cherries contain antioxidants that help reduce postrun inflammation. “To add crunch, stir in Famous Chocolate Wafers,” says Anderson.

1 heaping cup frozen, dark sweet cherries
1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1 cup chocolate soymilk
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons honey or agave syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
4 Famous Chocolate Wafers, crumbled

Place all the ingredients–except the Famous Chocolate Wafers–in a blender; process until creamy smooth. Divide between two glasses. Top each with a portion of crumbled Famous Chocolate Wafers. Serves two.
