Kokosnuss-Coconut.jpgI just ran across this cool protein smoothie recipe by Rebecca Bohl where she shares a stack of post-workout info. Rebecca don’t go into a bunch of detail on how to make this smoothie – she doesn’t have to! But it’ll really get your creative juices flowing and help you come up with some great new ideas for your own post-workout recovery drinks.

Check out the article below and let me know what you think…

After a workout, your smoothie should contain protein and carbs, and at the same time be free of any fats. Coconut milk and dairy milk are not suggested because of their higher fat content. The smoothie should also be easy to digest, so that the body can process and absorb the nutrients properly.

Enjoying a protein-rich smoothie right after your workout can jumpstart muscle recovery. Consuming protein after exercise helps to repair and build lean muscles. Greek yogurt contains double the amount of protein as regular yogurt, so it is used in this recipe. Another optional boost for this smoothie is protein powder. It is not included in the ingredient list, but there are many different kinds of protein powder available to use.
