A Simple Post-Workout Smoothie

Post-Workout Smoothie Recipe
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

I get a lot of questions about what I eat/drink post workout, so today I want to share with you my typical post-workout smoothie. I like to keep it simple (like all of my other recipes!), and I try to make it mostly carbs and protein. The carbs help the protein to get into the muscle, so together they’re a perfect combination (the fruit plus the protein powder). I also try to drink this smoothie 30-60 minutes post-workout especially if I’m not going straight into a meal. I find that it really makes a difference to fuel properly post-workout and I tend to see more results from my exercise by being conscious of my recovery practices.

Even if you’re not using this to recover post-workout, because it has the protein, this smoothie makes for a great meal replacement for breakfast or lunch. If you’re going to have this as a meal though you can add 1/3 avocado or even 1-2 tablespoons of almond or cashew butter.
