Thanks to nutritionist Cloe Moir from www.chloemoirnutrition.com for this great Recovery Smoothie recipe using our fantastic Recovery Formula!
A word from Cloe:
When you think of a post-workout meal or snack, people often think about including plenty of protein to help with muscle recovery. Now protein IS super important, but what else is also very important is the need to reduce inflammation in your body after your workout.
Exercise (especially endurance training) naturally produces free radical formation due to an increase in metabolism and also an increase in our oxygen uptake. These free radicals can cause inflammation, oxidative stress, and cellular damage.
This is the number 1 reason why it is important to have a meal high in anti-inflammatory foods after your workout and not just protein powder and water. For these 3 post-workout breakfast recipes I used Matakana Superfoods Recovery Formula to provide a boost in anti-inflammatory compounds. Their recovery formula is a highly concentrated form of fruit and vegetables which provides our body with those important antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients to fight free-radical damage.
It is a delicious mix of organic pomegranate, organic red raspberry, blackcurrant, organic beetroot and goji berry concentrate which also tastes AMAZING mixed with coconut yoghurt.
1 handful of kale or spinach
1 cup of nut milk (I used homemade cashew milk)
1/2 a frozen banana
1/3 cup of frozen berries
1 heaped tsp of Matakana Superfoods Recovery Formula
Place all ingredients into a high blender and blend until smooth.
