Fitness Friday- 3 Perfect Post-Workout Smoothies

I know I’m not the only one who walks out of the gym starving and is tempted to go through a fast food drive-thru.

STOP, don’t do it! You just killed it in class and now it’s time to refuel because what you eat after your workout makes a difference on how quickly you will see those results. I’ve been told to eat within 30 minutes after your workout so your body doesn’t start to burn muscles.

A smoothie is quick and easy to make, giving your body what it needs after your workout. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that these three smoothies taste just like dessert!

 Avo-Banana Smoothie

  • 1- Frozen Banana
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk (milk of choice)
  • 1/2 avocado, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1/2 cup of non-fat yogurt
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter
  • 1 scoop of Whey Protein (Optional)

This smoothie is delicious and provides your body with the nutrition it needs right after your workout.

 Strawberry Banana Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of almond milk (milk of  choice)
  • 1/4 cup of low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter
  • 1 scoop of Whey Protein (optional)

This taste just like ice cream! Instead of adding ice I freeze my fruit, it’s soft, creamy, and cold.

 Paradise Protein Smoothie

  • 1 cup of Almond Milk (Milk of Choice)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1 scoop of Whey Protein (optional)

This tropical smoothie will make you feel like you are on vacation!

I would love for you guys to share any of your favorite recipes! Happy Fourth of July weekend, and make sure to enjoy that BBQ! 

Xo,B!
