Whether hiking, running, cycling, strength training, or enjoying your favourite exercise class, following a workout it is important to replenish nutrients that you used as energy during your sweat session. Smoothies are a great option to refuel. Smoothies are not only easy to make and digest, but also a good option to replenish protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants in your body.

A simple “equation” that you can use to create your own smoothies is as follows:

 

Liquid

(water, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, or coconut water)

+

Leafy Greens

(spinach, kale, or chard)

+

Fruit

(strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and/or banana)

+

Protein

(protein powder, almond butter, chia seeds or hemp hearts)

+

Healthy Fats

(nut butters or avocado)

 

Super Greens Smoothie

 

Ingredients:

2-3 cups raw spinach or kale

½ avocado

Handful of strawberries

½ cup water

½ cup ice

1 tbsp almond butter

1 scoop of protein of choice

 

Instructions: Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until thick and creamy. Adjust your desired thickness by adding more water. Enjoy!
