Post-Workout Smoothie

Written By Kayla Seah

I’m a big believer in filling up on a bit of protein before or after my workouts. I’m usually so hungry after the gym that I need a smoothie to keep my hunger at a normal balance and, of course, there is that “golden hour” to take advantage of. This is when your muscles absorb the most nutrients and when sugars are replaced most efficiently — so get that protein in you! This post-workout smoothie has a nutty almond flavour with a natural sweetness from the dates and bananas. It’s my go-to recipe and consists of all my pantry staples. 

 

Post-Workout Smoothie (adapted from OhSheGlows)

 

1 cup almond milk 

1 frozen chopped banana (I like to keep a bag in the freezer)

3 pitted dates 

2 tsp. gluten free oats (optional)

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1/4 tsp – 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp natural vanilla extract

1 tbsp. almond butter or peanut butter

2 ice cubes 

 

Directions: Blend everything in a blender and enjoy!
