Whether you need motivation to hit the gym or you’re a fitness fanatic who can’t stop pumping iron, you’ll want a reward after an intense workout. Something sweet, rich and chocolaty would hit the spot. Instead of stopping at the juice bar and spending a small fortune on a protein shake, simply make one yourself. Pack it with dark chocolate, cherries, nut milk and cashew butter to get a luscious, muscle-fueling shake that tastes almost too good to be true. (Almost.)
