Post-workout smoothie

I’ve had more than one request for a post-workout smoothie recipe, and today I’m finally honoring my multiple promises to put one on the blog.

Smoothie they’re so customize-able!  You can use any variety of fruit or yogurt, milk or juice, you can even throw some veggies in there!  The sky is the limit! It’s healthy! (Well, most of the time…) And they make great post-workout snacks, and of course, amazing breakfasts, too! If you do it right, they taste almost as good as milk shakes. So in Celebration of the much-anticipated and long-awaited dust off that blender and pour yourself a nutrient-packed smoothie!

Basic Smoothie:

Prep Time: 5 min
Serves: 2 medium smoothies (or one very large one!)


 1 banana

1 c. frozen fruit (any kind!)

2/3 c. yogurt (plain, vanilla, fruit-flavoured, etc.)

1 c. milk (or juice, or half-juice half-Milk)


Throw everything into the blender and blend until it’s nice and smooth!
Optional Add-ins:

 – Spinach (yes, you can add up to a cup of spinach to this recipe without even tasting it!  Try it, you’ll surprise yourself!)

 – Protein powder (this makes for a great post-workout shake.  You may have to add a little extra liquid, depending on the protein powder you use)

– Avocado (half an avocado makes this smoothie super creamy, and adds some healthy fats)

– Fresh Fruit if you don’t have frozen- you just might want to add some ice so your smoothie will still be cold
