If you’re looking for a quick, healthy, delicious post-workout recovery snack/drink or even just a nutritious little something to go with your daily blah then look no further because have I got a smoothie for you.
It’s gratifyingly enjoyable in a way that post-workout drinks should be, easy to put together with simple ingredients that can be mixed up to suit your tastes.
If you’re used to keeping a stocked larder with superfoods or just interested in knowing the different ways to use up those seeds and berries you can’t seem to finish then this might just be what you’re looking for and it’s pink.
A great smoothie needs a banana and it’s one of those definite fruits that does wonders for your body and system. It’s easily accessible, cheap and sweet. Apart from some strawberries (you could use any easily blendable fruit or berry of choice), goji berries to oomph the superbness of this smoothie what with all the antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, chia seeds for the overall goodness of the omega 3, protein, antioxidants and fibre and some milk.
It’s pretty straightforward really. You bung everything in a blender and blend, but I will demonstrate still.
awkwardly add milk and banana to a blender
followed by strawberries, still keeping with the odd hand angle
in with goji berries
and chia seeds. Whirr to blend everything together.
until you get a prettily pink drink, stippled with nutritious black dots, like so.
Stick a straw in and drink before you sweat or after or even if you don’t sweat at all. This will not disappoint your health.
