Superfood protein smoothie

This smoothie is great to have any time you wish to enjoy but I always make it after a workout. Having liquid protein after a workout is essential is building and feeding your muscles. No, you will not look like a male bodybuilder with protein. Everyone needs protein. After a workout liquids are best to have because they get into your system and are broken down the quickest. It is important to have this protein within a window of 20-30 minutes after your workout. Why? Because in that time your muscles will readily accept carbohydrates and protein. smoothie

Recipe: 

  1. In a blender, crush 5 ice cubes. 
  2. Add 1/2 banana(frozen or fresh), 4-5 frozen strawberries, about 1/3 cup frozen blueberries, 1tbs flax seeds, 1tbs chia seeds, 1tbs maca powder, and one scoop of Perfect Fit (or any other vegan) protein
  3. On top of all that, add a dash of chocolate or regular coconut water and a cup or more of almond milk, and blend
  4. If the smoothie is very dry, add more almond milk or water

*A handful of spinach or kale can be added and other super foods can be replaced to your liking.
