Tropical protein smoothie
For post-training or snack-time heaven is this tropical smoothie recipe.
Consuming high-quality protein + carbs after a workout has been immensely beneficial to both my energy levels and recovery. Typically, you should look for a protein powder with roughly 25g/protein per serve and minimal fat + carb content. Be sure to look out for any nasties such as preservatives and chemical sweeteners as well. Many people looking to lose body fat find great success with adding protein to their diets, especially in conjunction with effective strength training.
This recipe has become one of my favourites for our Australian summer…
Despite only adding water to this mix; the result is super creamy and you will not believe how delicious as well!!
