MY POST WORKOUT SMOOTHIE

My go to workout smoothie is a delicious as it is healthy. You can really do any assortment of fruit that you want, but I love the mixture of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Another great option is blackberries. Also, if you use a frozen banana, it makes the smoothie so much creamier. Not sure how freezing a banana does this, but it's definitely worth a try. Just make sure you peel the banana before putting it in the freezer (I know, stupid mistake, but I've done it!). I always throw in a protein powder, because as I named the post, it usually is my post workout smoothie. This Nuskin My Victory Protein Boost is incredible - healthy, natural, gluten free, lactose & soy free... the benefits are endless. Contact me if you're interesting in learning more or ordering.
Take all the fruit (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of each type), the full banana, the appropriate measurement of protein powder, about a tablespoon or two of chia seeds, and throw it all in a blender. I then add enough almond milk to cover the top of all the ingredients. I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk because it doesn't have as much sugar, and you cannot taste the different when it is in a smoothie.
Blend it all up, and you've got your delicious, post workout smoothie!
Ingredients:
- about 1/4 cup raspberries
- about 1/4 cup strawberries
- about 1/4 cup blueberries
- about 1.5 cups of almond milk
- about 2 Tbsp of chia seeds
- 2 scoops of protein powder
- 1 full banana
