Protein powder after cardio?

I just received my Sun Warrior Protein Powder and had some after doing a heavy weight workout. Wondering though: Should I also have some after doing intervals (or any cardio)? Should I have some after doing low weight, high rep workouts?

Not an expert, but I always have protein powder after a workout no matter what I do. But I workout early in the AM and am not really hungry for breakfast immediately afterward (I eat breakfast maybe 1-2 hours later), but my body needs to refuel itself.
 
I always do my cardio first thing in the morning with nothing in my stomach so right after I'm done I have a protein shake. You should, your body needs the nurishments after cardio.
