Clean Green Drinks: Chocolate Peanut Butter Monster

Candice Kumai blends up a post-workout smoothie to help you build lean muscle.

My new book, Clean Green Drinks, contains more than 100 muscle-building, fat-burning, health-boosting recipes. But if I had to pick just one for you boys it would have to be the Chocolate Peanut Butter Monster. I see too many people drinking these chalky shakes, and going on these crazy diets, and I tell them, "You don’t even enjoy what you’re doing right now!"  I can assure you that you'll enjoy the Chocolate Peanut Butter Monster. It reminds me of a milkshake—and it tastes like one, too! It packs a nutritional punch, plus helps you build lean muscle.
