Some interesting stuff on recovery from this young blogger.
Smoothies are an incredible source of energy, well balanced nutrition. The key is to invest in a really good blender (and don’t whine about the price, you’re worth it). That’s a weapon that, if you use diligently, your body will thank you over and over for it!
Do these steps in order:
1. Blend your non-frozen ingredients first.
2. Add any frozen ingredients.
3. Add the ice last so you can adjust your level of frozen goodness!
4. Finally, you can adjust the level of extract/syrup if you have too little sweetness for your liking.
This smoothie has an incredible ratio of carbs–>protein–>fiber–>good fat from pb! It’s a GREAT pre-workout smoothie and by far Our Favorite Smoothie So Far!:
8oz Tropicana 50 OJ
2 Scoops About Time Protein Powder
2 tbsp Nuts N’ More Peanut Butter (it has TWICE the protein of any other peanut butter!)
2 tbsp Torani Vanilla Syrup
1 tsp Orange Extract
1/2 Cup Frozen Mango Chunks
1/2 Cup Pineapple Chunks
1/2 Cup Go Lean Cereal
7 Coconut Water Icecubes (plain is fine, but coconut adds nice flavor, or you can use 1 tsp Coconut extract and 7 icecubes)
Blend and enjoy!
