Recipe | Post Workout Smoothie*

Follow me on Instagram here

I love smoothies, and this is one of my favourites. It's the perfect post-workout pick-me-up: not only does it offer quick-release carbohydrates (from the fruit and honey), it also replenishes electrolytes (thanks to the coconut water) and aids muscle recovery (due to the protein powder).

If you want to give it a go yourself, here's what to put into it:

- 1 frozen banana
- 1-2 handfuls of frozen raspberries
- 1-2 handfuls of frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup of coconut water
- 1-2 teaspoons of honey
- A scoop of protein powder from peakbody.co.uk

Whizz it all up in a blender and enjoy! If it's too thick, add a little water and blend again until you achieve your desired consistency.
 
FYI: The fruit doesn't need to be frozen, but I think it's better when it is. If you're using fresh fruit, throw in a few ice cubes as well. You can also add a tablespoon of greek yoghurt if you feel like it.

  2. This sounds so refreshing! I like to add a bit of green to my smoothies, usually spinach. I also like frozen fruit because it makes it thicker and tastier. If it's to runny I won't like it lol it's a texture thing. Going to make this one for sure!

  4. This sound so yummy! I like to mix in a few veggies because too much fruit sends me into a sugar crash.
