Post Workout Smoothie For Recovery

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 2.7.2017 | COMMENTS: 121


Any post workout smoothie for recovery should AT LEAST have a good amount of plant protein, healthy carbs, and liquid for rehydration. This green smoothie hits checks all of the boxes.

You just rocked that tough workout! Now what? It’s super important to replenish the nutrients in your body and fuel your body with the right foods to help rebuild your muscles.

Our bodies need the perfect combination of protein, carbohydrates, and liquids after working up a sweat. This smoothie is just the thing to help your body recover.

Best smoothies for after the gym

Enjoying a smoothie after a workout is honestly one of my favorite things. I usually don’t have much of an appetite after a long run or a spinning class, so a smoothie is perfect. Yet not any smoothie will work post work, it’s important you use ingredient that’ll heal your body and enhance the results.

Each nutrient-dense ingredient was specially selected to help your body recover and rehydrate. Read our whole list of post-workout ingredients that we love adding to green smoothies here. Yet here’s a few of my favs:

  • plant-based protein: seeds, powders, nuts
  • antioxidant-rich berries: blueberries, cherries
  • lots of liquid: hydration, hydration, hydration!

Now get ready to help your body recover after a grueling (or not-so-grueling) workout. Just for you, we’ve created the perfect smoothie for recovery!
