If you are looking for a reenergizing option after your workout that refreshes your body and gives it all the nutrients it craves right now, this recipe might do the trick. The recipe makes 2 servings.
- 2 cups of chilled almond milk
- 1 cup if chilled papaya juice
- 2 cups of frozen blueberries
- 1 banana
- 1 ripe avocado
Mix all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy. Since prep time is a mere 1 to 2 minutes, you give your body all it needs after a workout as fast as possible, since it is rich in vitamins, potassium, minerals, anti-oxidants and a touch of sweetness thanks to the papaya juice. Instead of chilling the smoothie with ice cubes or crushed ice, I use chilled or fresh ingredients that I store in my freezer. Thereby you avoid a watered down smoothie.
Pro tip: if you want to up the protein content, add a scoop or two of protein powder.
