I’m super excited to share my favorite post workout smoothie!! I’ve always been a smoothie gal, but now I have perfected my recipe.

First things first, my number one tip for smoothies is from nutritionist, Kelly Leveck (a wellness goddess) of Be Well By Kelly.

The Fab Four: Protein, fat, fiber and greens. 

Notice there is no fruit in the Fab Four. I was shook!!!

I used to make the mistake of cramming my blender full of fruit when making smoothies. I didn’t realize that if you’re consuming that much sugar after a workout, you’re semi missing the point of the protein shake. Adding that much sugar will spike your blood sugar which will cause a crash later. Getting proper protein absorption is so important after a good sweaty sesh!

Funny enough, I don’t really even miss it. It still tastes bomb with less/no fruit, so might as well leave it out!

Anyways onto the recipe:

Post Workout Green Smoothie

  • Handful of spinach
  • 1/2 scoop of green powder
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop of pea protein powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1-2 Tbsp almond butter
    • *Sometimes I add almond butter as a topping and don’t blend it up

Add everything together and blend away! I usually eat mine with a spoon because it’s sooo thick and creamy!
