Refreshing Recovery Smoothies
with one of these recovery smoothies.
Smoothies made right are ideal for recovery because they deliver a great combo of carbs and protein and fluids that cover the three Rs of recovery: Rehydrate, Refuel and Rebuild. Rehydrating means you need fluid, refueling equals wholesome carbohydrates and protein is necessary for rebuilding muscles.
Our three favorite smoothie recipes below provide fluids, carbs and protein but are also rich in beneficial antioxidants from foods like beets, raspberries and pomegranate juice. We like frozen raspberries because they provide 8 grams of filling fiber per cup—more than any other berry.
