Since making my purchase, I’ve concocted several different drinks. Most of them have been okay. The one I made with Nektar Naturals was pretty good, actually. The others were nothing awful but nothing to write home about. The latest and greatest, however, is a keeper. It’s creamy, it’s green, and it’s sweet like an Orange Julius (which I should mention I’ve never even had but my husband swears it tastes similar, so I take his word for it). I usually don’t throw name brands out there for recipes but this time I’m gonna because it makes a big difference.
My Orange Cream + Spinach Recovery Smoothie is chock full of nutrients. It’s the perfect blend of carbohydrates and proteins with a 4:1 ratio to properly refuel after a hard workout or long run. Your muscle cells will benefit from proper post-workout recovery, allowing you to perform better next time.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I see big things in my future as a smoothie-making machine. I’m gonna rock it with these nutrient-dense, drinkable treats!
