Smooth Fuel: Smoothie Recipes For All!

Happy Wednesday, Athlete!

You’re a busy person. You work hard and workout harder. The last thing you need to do is waste precious time and energy chewing your food. Let your blender do that for you!

I’ve got 5 awesome smoothie recipes to share with you! Smoothies are my favorite breakfast, pre-, and post-workout meal. I like 'em all the time!

And there are so many ways to be creative or get fancy with them! So if you are a smoothie lover, like myself, OR if you

haven’t yet tried a smoothie that you liked, then why not try these?! I’m sure there will be one for YOU on this list!

Each of these recipes are simple. Gather the listed ingredients. Stick em in the blender. Water down as needed to get the right consistency.

Blend. Drink. Enjoy.

Sweet Cherry Almond Smoothie

  • 1 & 1/2 cups Cherries frozen
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop Protein Powder
  • 1 Banana
  • Ice
  • Optional: top with unsweetened coconut flakes + almond butter

Lovely Greens Smoothie

  • 1 cup Pineapple
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Grapes

Peachy Mango Smoothie

  • 1 cup Peaches
  • 1 cup Mangoes

Lovely Greens Smoothie

Modeled after my favorite Booster Juice Smoothie!

  • 1 handful of Spinach
  • 1 Apple (cored)
  • 1/2 cup Acai Juice
  • Large handful of Parsley

Spiced Coffee

Never drink a $20 frappa-whatever from Starbucks again! This tastes 400 times better and is way healthier, too!

  • ½ cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
    • Pro tip – make it the night before and leave it in the fridge overnight
  • 1 scoop chocolate or vanilla protein powder
  • ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ice

There you have it! Blend, drink and be merry, dear athletes!

I hope the rest of your week goes... smoothly ;)
