Happy Meatless Monday! And Marathon Monday! This week we’re back with another round of awesome recipes to share. Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store!
I love a good smoothie after a long run. And this one’s pretty ridiculous. Since today’s Marathon Monday, Meatless Monday, and a lot of us are in the crux of our training cycles, I thought I’d share it with you today. It’s a lot of goodness packed into a small container. Protein? Check. Electrolytes? Check. Fruits? Check. Everything good for recovery after a long run — or any run for that matter.
My go-to ingredients for almost any smoothie are bananas, clementines, and yogurt. I love the boost of potassium and vitamin C from the fruits, and the yogurt adds a nice sweetness to the smoothie.
With this recipe specifically, I added frozen peaches which are an incredible addition. The flavors blend together very nicely. I think you’ll love it!
Marathon Recovery Smoothie
- 1 banana
- 1 clementine, segmented
- 1/3 C Greek vanilla yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 C orange or mango flavored electrolyte drink (or water if you prefer)
- 3 frozen peach slices
Combine all ingredients in a single serve blender cup. Pulse to combine. Continue pulsing until smooth. Drink and enjoy!
Like I said — easy, filling, and replenishing. Those muscles of yours will be thankful for the extra kick of protein in there.
