Post-Workout Smoothie

How’s your “New Year New Me” thing going so far? Slacking a little? Crushing it? Sorry if I’m being nosey! 🙂 We’re just in the second week of 2017 but I know how hard it is to initiate and maintain change so I thought now would be a great time to share this recipe. It is my favorite way to treat myself and help with recovery after going hard in the gym. And I have to be honest with y’all, that’s not how the majority of my workouts are right now! My current fitness routine is mostly comprised of yoga but for the more strenuous strength training and cardio that I do…do, this smoothie is my go-to afterward. This recipe is quick (under two minutes) because right after working out, I want to jump in the shower as soon as possible and have no time at all for a drawn-out production. I mean, the PB&J Smoothie Bowl I sometimes whip up is very cute and also fairly quick to make but in the words of Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time fuh that!” after a workout. Enter my go-to post-workout smoothie.

This is one of those throw-everything-in-the-blender recipes so there’s only one step. There are only five required ingredients and if you use frozen banana, you can skip the ice and that brings it down to just four. PLUS (and probably best of all) it tastes like a Wendy’s frosty, I promise! I like to top this smoothie with a few sliced almonds for some crunch. This adds an additional two seconds to the process and is optional. And in case you are doing the Daniel Fast right now: although this smoothie tastes chocolatey (thanks to raw cocoa powder) it is compliant! *insert praise dance break here* Just make sure the almond or nut butter you use is free of added sugar or sweeteners and you should be good to go to. You can find my Daniel Fast survival guide here. It’s also got helpful tips for pretty much any new diet challenge or program. Later this week, I am sharing a new recipe I’ve added to my meal prep rotation so be sure to check back for that! As if it couldn’t get any better, this smoothie is vegan, paleo, gluten-free, and Whole30-compliant!

I’m not a fitness expert but this is what works for me. I’d love to know: what do you typically eat or drink after a workout? Don’t be stingy–share below in the comments. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

P.S. In case you were wondering, I do not workout in makeup or jewelry, lol (No shade to anyone that does)! These photos were part of a larger shoot and I’m so grateful to Joshua Farris for squeezing them in!

  24. This looks and sounds delicious. I need more smoothies in my life. I dont have them nearly enough and after my runs/walks this would be great.

  25. Amber

  26. Yum! I’m always looking for new smoothie recipes and anything with chocolate…yes please!

  27. Okay… I would totally work out JUST to have that smoothie at the end! (Whatever works, right? Haha!)

    You look so great in these photos and that smoothie looks so yummy and easy to make! Will definitely have to give this a try!

  31. This smoothie looks so yummy! I always forget to make a smoothie after the gym so I should really start

  32. I’m trying to get back into my workout routine after being sick last week. My little diva of a niece gave me her nasty cold. She was fine in a day, I was down for a week+. Once I get back into it I’m going to give this smoothie a try, I think it might help curb the appetite I usually get after a workout.

  33. This sounds so yummy and very simple to make! Like you, after the gym I don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen so this is perfect!

  34. toughcookiemommy

    This smoothie is perfect for quenching your thirst after a workout. I’m sure it also replenishes your energy after working out too.

  35. This looks so so good. Will have to try it soon!

    1. Jazz
