Recipe: The power of a smoothie
Smoothies serve as great recovery fuel for athletes, and we make them all the time at the Training HAUS fueling station. They’re easy to make and great in the first 30 minutes following exercise, plus you can pack almost everything you need into a 20-ounce cup. That includes calcium, antioxidants, carbohydrates and protein!
Our base at Training HAUS is:
- ½ cup yogurt
- About 8 oz. of milk
- 1 cup of frozen fruit
- ½ cup of spinach or kale
Depending on your needs and wants, we may:
- Add some peanut butter
- Switch up the milk for lower calories or individuals with allergies
- Add some protein power for that extra protein kick
Remember, though: 20-30 grams of protein is all you need. Are you in need more calories? Try adding oats, flaxseed or avocados to your smoothies.
Have fun refueling!
