POST TRAINING ANTI-OXIDANT BERRY BOOST
I DON'T ADVOCATE SMOOTHIES AS A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO ANY HEALTH CONDITION BUT THEY CAN CERTAINLY HAVE THEIR PLACE IN A BALANCED DIET. IF YOU ARE ON THE MOVE, SHORT OF TIME, NEED A VEGETABLE BOOST OR UNDER THE WEATHER, A SMOOTHIE COULD BE THE WAY TO GO. JUST REMEMER THAT THEY NEED TO INCLUDE GOOD FATS TO ABSORB ANY LIPOPHYLIC VITMANS (FAT SOLUBLE), AND IF THEY ARE IN PLACE OF A MEAL, OR AFTER EXECRCISE THEY NEED TO INCLUDE SOME PROTEIN. ENJOY!
- 1 scoop organic whey protein
- large handful fresh raspberries
- 1 scoop reds powder (I used Neal's Yard Remedies Berry Blend Radiance Boost)
- Juice 1 lime
- 2 tbsp shredded coconut
- 200ml coconut water
- Combine the lot in a blender
The NYR reds blend does contain some stevia and maltodextrin already, if yours isn't particularly sweet chuck in a large chunk of ripe mango and enjoy the extra anti-inflammatory and prebiotic fibre benefits.
