I don’t know about you but after a good workout the last thing I want to do is eat anything, particularly not straight away. However, I know it’s good for my recover to fuel back up with some good old protein and carbs soon afterwards. This is where the smoothie comes in!
Creamy, green (naturally, ha), cold, refreshing and packed full of protein, this simple smoothie is so quick and easy to make after a workout. Or just for a snack. Or when waiting for your supermarket delivery after CrossFit late on a Monday night, like me yesterday… Winter? What’s that?
- 1 frozen banana chopped into chunks
- A handful of spinach (I used frozen)
- 1.5 tbsp hemp protein powder
- 3 dates (pitted)
- 1 tsp almond butter
- Almond milk
Just pop all in ingredients into your blender and add enough almond milk (or you could use water) to get it moving. Blend on a high speed until smooth.
What’s your go to to refuel after a workout?
