How to make my post-workout smoothie.
The first thing I put in is a scoop of my protein powder. The protein powder I use is plant based. I get it from Costco. Some people find it a little bit sweet because of the sweetener that they use, but I find that it tastes just fine as long as you put a banana in there with it. You can use whichever protein powder you want there are a couple options for dairy free protein powders out there you just have to look.
Next I put in about a tablespoon of milled flaxseed. It is an easy source of omega-3s.
The next ingredient is a biiiiiig handful of spinach. The spinach gives the smoothie a really nice green color and also, you gotta have those leafy greens! It is a great way to get them into your diet. Even if you do not like spinach trust me, you will not taste it.
The next ingredient is probably my favorite, frozen bananas. These things taste amazing in smoothies.
Once you have your banana in there and everything is packed down the last thing you need to do is add some water. I add about 1 cup or 1 cup and a half. Depends on how much you have in your smoothie. You just need enough water so that it will blend properly.
All that is left is to hit blend and then wait a minute or so until it is mixed fully and then there you go, one tasty smoothie. Feel free to experiment with the ingredients and maybe add some more of your favorite fruit.
Here is an extra little pro tip for you guys: rinse out your blender right away. Do not let it sit. It will be a million times easier to clean it afterwards trust me. Have a great day and make yourself a smoothie!
