Recovery Breakast Smoothie

Recovery Breakast Smoothie

What's great about it

Your body needs protein to repair, and quality carbs to replenish glycogen after a workout. I love this recovery smoothie and often enjoy it after an exercise session to help replenish and refuel. What I love about this smoothie is that you blend the whole fruit, so you get a good dose of plant-based fibre that will help keep you full, help lower cholesterol and stabilise blood glucose levels. You also have the choice of pouring the smoothie over fresh fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola which makes it that extra special and pure recovery food.

  

Oranges + bananas are jam-packed with B group vitamins including thiamine (B1) and B6, which are vital for energy metabolism and nerve function. Combine with Healthy Chef Protein which is high in BCAA’s (branched-chain amino acids). Studies show that BCAA’s can reduce fatigue and improve exercise performance, reduce muscle breakdown and facilitate healing. I've also added Healthy Chef Natural Immune Support which contains 10x RDI of Vitamin C and the full RDI of Vitamin D to assist in the body's recovery after a workout. Bananas are a great source of potassium that helps to regulate muscle contraction and fluid balance in the body. They also add thickness and creaminess to this smoothie that will satisfy with every mouthful.
