PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE

  • 1 ripe frozen banana

  • 1 tbs organic cinnamon

  • ½ cup coconut water

  • ½ cup coconut milk

  • ½ cup cold water

  • 1 organic medjool date

  • 1 cup organic spinach

  • 1 tsp maca powder

  • 1 tbs raw cacao powder

  • 1 serving from a clean source of protein of your choice

  • HELPFUL TIP: THIS IS A GREAT PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE TO DRINK 2-3 HOURS BEFORE YOUR WORKOUT. THERE IS A HEALTHY BLEND OF PROTEIN, FATS AND CARBOHYDRATES. THE FAT HELPS SATIATE YOU AND SLOWLY DISBURSE FUEL ACCORDING TO YOUR ACTIVITY LEVEL TOO!

INSTRUCTIONS: Blend all ingredients in your blender until smooth and creamy. DELICIOUS!

POST-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE

1 cup cold water

1 cup coconut water

3/4 cup grapes

1 tsp cracked wall chlorella

2 organic medjool dates

1 cup organic dark leafy greens

1 serving from a clean source of protein of your choice

HELPFUL TIP: AFTER STRESSING YOUR BODY FROM A VIGOROUS WORKOUT LESS IS MORE. IT'S BEST TO FEED YOUR BODY  BIO-AVAILABLE FORMS OF CARBOHYDRATES AND AN EASILY DIGESTIBLE SOURCE OF PROTEIN. YOU WILL NOTICE THERE IS NOT MUCH HEALTHY FATS IN A POST WORKOUT SMOOTHIE. WHY? FATS ARE MEANT TO KEEP YOU SATIATED AND SLOW DOWN DIGESTION. AFTER A WORKOUT YOU WANT TO FEED THE BODY FOR MAXIMUM ABSORPTION.

INSTRUCTIONS: Blend all ingredients in a blender until creamy. Enjoy!

HAPPY SMOOTHIE MAKING!
