Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing with you a smoothie recipe that I’ve been making every morning post-workout because it’s so yummy, filling, and helps my muscles recover after and intense workout. I love smoothie’s because they are quick, simple, and I can change them up with so many different ingredients. Plus, they are really refreshing when it’s warm out. Once it starts getting colder out I will probably go back to making my eggs with avocado and tomato on sprouted toast for breakfast but until then, it’s smoothie time! Plus, who wouldn’t want chocolate for breakfast?!
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (or almond milk)
- 1/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1 medium banana
- 1 scoop Everlast Vanilla Vegan Protein
- 1 TBSP almond butter
- 1 TBSP non-alkaline cacao powder
- 1 TBSP flax seeds
- 1 TBSP chia seeds
- 1 TBSP coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional: not recommended if your pregnant or nursing)
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- 3-4 ice cubes
Blend and enjoy this delicious post-workout recovery smoothie! If it’s not sweet enough you could add in a medjool date as well (which would get you some more fiber in this smoothie too).
I have been using Everlast Vanilla Vegan Protein because it’s not loaded with lots of junk and it tastes amazing in my smoothies! I am an Everlast Ambassador and if you are interested in trying the Vegan Protein, they currently have it on sale with FREE SHIPPING and you get a FREE box of their Everlast FUEL (pre-workout supplement). Plus, if you use my code: HEALTHYFITANDBAREFOOT you get an insider’s discount on top of all that! This special has been running for a little while, so it’s not going to last much longer.
Do you have a go-to smoothie that you like to make daily?
