This possibly is the best smoothie I’ve ever created, no seriously- it is! Let me tell you why!
When it comes to post workout fuel, it’s important to try and make sure that your body replenishes fluids, restores it’s energy and gets the nutrients that aid in muscle recovery.
When you decide to incorporate a smoothie as a post workout fuel option it’s important to make sure they are made with the intention of refueling your body. We too often see the overuse of certain ingredients and the lack of some important ingredients in smoothies. It’s extremely important to be mindful of how much of what you are putting in there. Just because you are drinking your calories doesn’t mean you are not in taking them the same way as food.
A post workout smoothie should range in the amount of 250-300 calories and contain all your macro nutrients: Carbohydrates, Protein and Healthy Fat.
With this smoothie, I’ve also added some powerful digestive enzymes and antioxidants.
