Nutrient Dense Post Workout Smoothie
This green smoothie can help rehydrate you after a workout and feed your hungry muscles with some clean, highly digestible protein.
Kale is included in this recipe because it is considered (by some) to be the most nutrient dense dark green leafy vegetable. I consume kale very often for this reason.
I do rotate my greens as recommended, but I bring kale back into the mix rather quickly.
If you enjoy kale or want to start including it into your diet, consider this raw kale chip recipe (video). It is a delicious nutritious snack.
This nutrient dense post workout smoothie contains protein, healthy, complex carbohydrates, fiber, antioxidants, and essential fats. Enjoy!
1/2 cup of water
1-2 handfuls of spinach
1-2 handfuls of kale
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/4 cup of raspberries
Add water to the blender carafe (or blender jar), then put in the other ingredients. Depending on the size of your carafe, you may need to blend in stages. It doesn't matter which ingredient gets blended when, just be sure to have a liquid base to help the blades do their job. Add more water as needed. May produce up to 2 liters of green smoothie, but again, it depends on the size of you carafe.
