Smoothie for energy & repair:


This is one of the recipes I have been giving to my sports nutrition clients, it contains a good mix of complex carbs, unsaturated fats, good quality protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

It is terrific for energy, replenishing glucose stores and increasing recovery; it could be taken an hour before training or shortly after finishing.

  •  1 banana (carbs, potassium)
  • Half an avocado (unsaturated fats)
  • Handful of fresh/frozen berries e.g.      blackberries, blueberries etc.(antioxidants).
  • 3-4 tbsps natural probiotic yoghurt (e.g. Glenisk      – probiotics, protein).
  • 1 scoop Whey protein (in health stores e.g.      Solgar “Whey to go”)
  • 2 cups of apple juice (to replace glycogen      stores)
  • A small amount of grated ginger e.g. ½  tsp. (antioxidants, adrenal supporting,      anti-inflammatory, reduces muscle spasms).
  • Sprinkling of cinnamon (blood sugar balancing      properties).

Blend everything together until smooth, drink/eat with a spoon and enjoy!
