Chickpea Shake: Light Meal or Post-Workout Nutrition

chickpea shake

I thought up of this shake this past weekend when I wanted a light lunch packed with nutrients. The weekends are typically my recovery days, when I don’t workout, so I tend to eat lighter lunches then.

This shake is full of carbs, protein and fiber, so it’s also good post-workout food.

Chickpeas are filling, and you can enhance the flavor with your own additions (ex: a fresh squeeze of citrus, a bit of cheese, fresh rosemary leaves, etc.).


1 can of chickpeas
olive oil to taste (I recommend 1/4 cup)
garlic salt to taste

Put the chickpeas including the water from the can into a food processor and add the olive oil and garlic salt. Process until the chickpeas are smooth.
