For those of you who love to exercise before starting your workday, this smoothie recipe is for you. It's intended to refuel you after a hard workout, and keep you satisfied until lunch.


A smoothie should contain all the things you'd want in a healthy, well-balanced meal: protein, fiber, and fat (in a good ratio). So, let's get to making a berrylicious smoothie you can sip on post-workout!

Berrylicious Smoothie Recipe

1. Berries

Add 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries to the blender. I like cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. These berries are very high in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in the body. They are also high in fiber.

2. Spinach

Next, add a couple handfuls of fresh spinach. You can add any other vegetables that you would like for more fiber and nutrients.

3. Almond Milk (Or Liquid Of Your Choice)

Pour 1/2 cup to one cup of liquid into the blender. I like to add unsweetened almond milk, so it isn't too frothy.

4. Flax, Chia, Or Hemp Seeds

Next, add a tablespoon of flax, chia, or hemp seeds for an excellent source of healthy fat and plant-based protein. They are also high in fiber.

5. Greek Yogurt Or Protein Powder

Finally, we need our primary source of protein. Add either a 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt or one scoop of protein powder.


Blend all of these together, and you've got yourself a tasty post-workout smoothie!
