MCLV Mange: Protein Smoothie

I’ve been amping up my workout regime in recent months and one of the most important ways to stay healthy and promote recovery while you’re increasing physical activity is through nutrition.

Smoothies and protein puddings are a GREAT way to replenish your body, not only because liquids are easier for your body to digest than solids, but because you can throw in all sorts of great ingredients to get the most out of your meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Frozen Banana {Sometimes I skip the fruit entirely and add sweet potato instead!}
  • 2-3 Cups Organic Spinach
  • Lemon Juice
  • Fresh Ginger
  • Maca
  • Acai
  • Bee Pollen
  • Wheatgrass

{Note: Whenever I get bananas I wait for them to ripen then peel, cut into fourths, and put in a Ziplock bag in the freezer. Instant ice cream or smoothies whenever a hankering hits!}

Directions:

  • Add ingredients to a blender or food processor
  • Add liquid of choice to achieve desired consistency {almond milk, coconut water – Whatever you’d like!}
  • Drink enthusiastically!

This is the recipe for my current favorite protein smoothie, but the beauty of smoothies is that you can add whatever you’re craving or whatever is in your fridge/freezer. At night when I’m in the mood for something sweet after a long day I’ll sprinkle shredded coconut, goji berries & chia seeds on top for an added boost.

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:
