A Simple Post-Workout Smoothie

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.


  • ¾ cup (90 g) raspberries
  • 1 cup (30 g) spinach
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein, like the Reboot with Joe Protein Powder or a sprouted rice or hemp protein
  • 1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 3 -5 ice cubes


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Add ingredients to blender and blend on high for 45 – 60 seconds until smooth.
