The Best Post-Workout Recovery Smoothie

When you workout, your fuel stores are depleted, and your body turns slightly acidic from the major lactic acid build-up from moving your muscles. You have around 45 minutes to meet the metabolic window to refill these fuel stores. Muscles can store more fuel immediately after exercising than any other time!

This smoothie is packed with the proper carbohydrates, amino acids, antioxidants, electrolytes and fatty acids to completely re-nourish and prep your body for its next sweat session! The bananas are great for replenishing glycogen stores whereas the berries pack the smoothie with immune boosting antioxidants. The coconut water replenishes crucial electrolytes lost during sweating and the chia seeds and greens repair muscle with their amino-acid dense profile. Chia seeds are also packed full of heart healthy omega fatty acids!

If you want an amazing blender, I highly suggest you purchase a vitamix! It makes the smoothest, most creamiest smoothies, raw soups and sauces I have ever experienced! If you purchase a vitamix through Live Love Fruit, you will get FREE shipping and handling! Click HERE to purchase.
