My favourite post-workout drink.

Namaste, beautiful people.

I hope you’re all having a beautiful week, and have had plenty of chance to relax, take a step back and reach inner peace.  

Today on my sports and fitness blog I wanted to share with you one of my favourite post workout snacks, the Chocolate Banana Green Smoothie.  

post-workout green smoothie

I drink a green smoothie every single day, normally after my morning workout and find it the perfect way to nourish my body, and help my body to recover and rejuvenate after my workout.  If you are someone who doesn’t think you will like green smoothies then this is a great recipe to try out (use the spinach) as it doesn’t taste too much of green, instead the overwhelming flavour profile will be the banana and the chocolate.


One of the main reasons a green smoothie is the perfect post workout snack is that having the snack in liquid form means that your body can absorb the nutrients to the muscle cells far quicker, as they don’t need to be digested first.  It is also full of fruits and vegetables which means that you should be able to consume at least 3 of your fruit and vegetables for the day, and should mean that it will keep you full for quite a few hours.
