Runner's Delight: Five Desserts for Runners

This #Top5Tuesday list is a #sweet one for anyone who likes #recipes!!! And especially runners! Here's our Runner's Delight Top 5 #Desserts for Runners: Summer can be a runner’s paradise. All that sunshine and the clear blue skies has the outdoors calling to us. But summer also means hotter runs which means more sweat and strain on your body. After a tough run, it’s important to give your body what it needs to recover. Hello, dessert!
  1. Orgain Cherry Mint Sorbet After a long, hot run nothing sounds better than a cool treat. This Cherry Mint Sorbet is a sweet and refreshing dessert perfect for post-run. Frozen cherries are available year round and add a boost of antioxidants while Orgain Sweet Vanilla Bean Protein Powder makes this a protein-rich treat, just what your body needs to recover.
  1. Workout Brownies from Chocolate Covered Katie
Chocolate after a run? Yes, please! After hitting the trail, your energy stores will be depleted and muscles broken down, which means it’s time for recovery! Help speed up your recovery with a delicious post-run dessert like these workout brownies. Made with all plant-based ingredients, these brownies are easy to take on the go and are nothing to feel guilty about.
  1. Orgain Frozen Almond Horchata
A sweet and cooling beverage is just the thing after a sunshine filled run. This creamy Frozen Almond Horchata is satisfying and decadent and is a great way to refuel your body after a workout––it’s packed with protein and minerals like calcium, potassium and iron from the almond milk. The addition of cinnamon can help reduce any post-workout swelling thanks to the spice’s anti-inflammatory properties. And it couldn’t be easier to make. Just toss all the ingredients into a blender and blend away.
  1. Chunky Monkey Popsicles from Kiwi & Carrot
These popsicles are not only delicious but they take us back to our childhood -- there’s nothing quite like a popsicle dripping down your hand on a hot summer’s day. Protein-rich peanut butter combined with coconut milk makes for a creamy base for these popsicles. The addition of banana gives a boost of potassium, a mineral your body will be in need of after sweating. Note: don’t let the full-fat coconut milk scare you. While it is high in saturated fat, long considered to be the “bad” fat, saturated fat may not be as bad for health as once thought. Recent research has weakened the link between saturated fat and heart disease. Most nutrition experts will still recommend keeping saturated fat intake to no more than 10% of daily calories, but saturated fat may not be the villain we once thought.
  1. Orgain Strawberries & Cream Chia Seed Pudding
This twist on pudding is a nutrient power-house. Chia seeds are loaded heart healthy omega-3’s, fiber and antioxidants, while Orgain Sweet Vanilla Bean Protein Powder adds a healthy dose of plant-based protein. It’s a well-rounded dessert well worth trying.
