Unwinding after working out – like the DUDE

This post is brought to you by Silk. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Some people like an ice cold beer after a long run. Not me. I’ve never been a beer drinker. I don’t enjoy the taste or foam.  And wine is just not enjoyable after a workout. 

Then, I discovered White Russians. My husband is a total Big Lebowski fan – he can pretty much quote the entire movie. These are the best drinks to have after a long run because you can make them as weak as you want (I like just enough alcohol to relax with but not so much that it dehydrates me) . 

Silk White Russian

I am actually pretty happy that I am lactose intolerant. Because a White Russian made with Silk Soymilk is even yummier!  And I love that every serving of Silk Soymilk has 8 grams of heart-healthy, plant-powered protein.

There is nothing quite like the feeling of refueling while you are relaxing with an ice cold beverage. Ahhh…. protein. Ahh….. chilaxxing. Best EVER. 

You can have your smoothies, I’ll take my White Russian on ice please.  Josh makes them SO GOOD.  Just Silk Soymilk + Vodka (my fav alcohol of all time) + Coffee Liqueur = bliss. 

White Russian Recipe

  • 10 oz glass half filled with ice
  • 1 shot Vodka
  • 1 shot Coffee Liqueur
  • Fill the rest of the glass with Silk Milk

Make this as strong or as weak as you like!

Funds would help him create his solo album, “Broken Temples.” And the button I wanted to click would allow the pledger…
