Post-Workout Smoothie
Health Rating
This post-workout smoothie is a great option for quick muscle recovery!


1 scoop Hemp protein powder
1 tbsp Sunflower seeds
1/2 cup Frozen berries
1 cup Frozen spinach
3/4 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 tsp Maca powder (optional - an adaptogen that can help athletes recover more quickly)


1. Add your hemp protein powder, sunflower seeds, frozen berries, frozen spinach, almond milk and maca powder to a high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute). Serve and enjoy!


Quick Tips:

Prep your ingredients in portioned containers ahead of time and freeze so that when you are ready to make the smoothie all you have to do is add the ingredients into the blender with almond milk and blend until smooth.
Make your own almond milk here or if you're short on time, an organic almond, hemp, coconut or soy milk without any added sweeteners.


Nutritional Highlights:

Sunflower seeds
Sunflower seeds also provide a protein boost here (seeds are often a better way to go to get more nutrients for less fat and calories).

Spinach is alkalizing and will pack another protein punch.
