Super refuel smoothie

Yesterday I completed the endurance race that I’ve been training and carb loading for. This meant my post race breakfast this morning needed to be filling and kick-start the restoration of my battered muscles.

I don’t often use protein powder, but I think it does help with recovery after particularly long or difficult sessions.  I use unflavoured whey protein which I find bland enough not to add any significant flavour – in fact I’ve had this smoothie minus the protein powder and it doesn’t taste much different.

It may be a while before I’m walking normally but hopefully this is a good way to start.

Super refuel smoothie (serves one)

post build smoothie

  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 200ml almond milk
  • 100ml water
  • 2 fresh figs
  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 teaspoon almond butter
  • 1 dessert spoon of whey protein powder (unflavoured)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • A good sprinkle of cinnamon

Blend everything together.

You could add a bit more water if you wanted a thinner consistency – but this should slide up a straw nicely.
