I always struggle with what to eat after a workout because they make me feel so great but so hungry at the same time. I don’t want to negate all the work that I just did but I still need some protein and probably some electrolytes to replenish my system. I love a good smoothie so I have been giving mine a few boosts to make them healthier and more filling. Here’s one of the recipes I have really grown to love.
As you can probably see in this picture, I don’t use a Nutri-Bullet or any of those fancy blenders so the key to a good smoothie for me is making sure that I give it enough time to blend so there are not big chunks of fruit or kale pieces left behind. I also use frozen fruit so I don’t have to use ice.
For a thicker smoothie, you can reduce the amount of water that you use or add more yogurt.
These smoothies are great meal replacements for me. They make me nice and full and I don’t have to negate my entire workout. If I’m feeling particularly hungry I may add a couple pieces of turkey bacon or some avocado slices on the side.
Hopefully this will help you in your journey to lead a healthy lifestyle. As always, I can’t wait to see how this comes out for you! Share your pictures with me on Instragram @cocktailswithkiera or on Twitter @cocktailswithk. Don’t forget to use #cocktailswithkiera.
