Since we mentioned smoothies in our post on 5 foods to fuel your workout, we’re bringing you some smoothie recipes!
They will pretty much always give you protein and carbs as well as additional benefits based on what you put into your blender.
Here’s a few recipes to get you started.
They’re all easy to do, just throw the ingredients in the blender, blend them up, and enjoy!
Everything But The Kitchen Sink Smoothie (makes 1- 8 oz. smoothie)
1 medium ripe banana
3 raw broccoli florets, stems cut off
6 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
½ tablespoon smooth peanut butter
Smoothie will be very thick. For thinner consistency, add a little milk until desired consistency is reached.
Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie (makes 2- 8 oz. smoothies)
1 cup 1% or less milk
2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
1 medium peeled kiwi
½ cup strawberries
2 teaspoons vanilla whey-protein powder
3 large ice cubes
Banana Oatmeal Smoothie For Fiber (makes 2- 8 oz. smoothies)
2 cups ice
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
½ cup cooked oatmeal (or raw if you don’t mind the consistency)
1/3 cup raw unsalted almonds
Vanilla Orange Smoothie (makes 2- 8 oz. smoothies)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
¼ cup seedless red grapes
1 medium orange, peeled
1 cup ice
1 cup skim milk or unsweetened organic almond milk
Smoothie will be very liquidy. If thicker consistency is desired, add less milk.
Sounds tasty, right?!
Just remember the possibilities are endless with a smoothie.
You can add in your favorite fruits, yogurt, protein powder, oils, vegetables, or juices… even nuts or oatmeal. It all depends on what benefits you want from the smoothie.
