They don’t go into a bunch of detail on how these work in your body, but it’ll really get your creative juices flowing and help you come up with some great new ideas for your own post-workout smoothie recipes.

Check out the article below by Shell Harris, and let me know what you think…

You’ve finished a great run. You’re tired and sweaty. Chances are you’re not ready to dive into a heavy meal and all you really want is a cold beer and a hot shower. But you know that what you need to do is refuel your body. One of the best and easiest ways to do that is to blend up a healthy smoothie. Smoothies are a great choice for adding carbs and protein that you need to promote muscle repair. Get your blender and let’s go.

But don’t be fooled into thinking that what you need is a high calorie smoothie from the local coffee shop or smoothie bar. While the convenience and taste may be great all you’re really doing is increasing your calorie intake and decreasing the contents of your wallet. Don’t believe it? Check the calorie content, those options can top 900 or 1,000 calories. Instead, toss your own healthy ingredients into the blender. You can blend your own choice of ingredients and flavors and enjoy a smoothie with less than 300 calories.
