Recharge and have a smoothie
After a workout I love a quick and healthy smooth to recharge! Depending on the ingredients, the smoothie could be my first small breakfast or a full breakfast.
The Green Smoothie
This fresh and reenergising combination is cleansing and filling at the same time. The green veggies are super hydrating, the blueberries full of antioxidants and the hemp seeds a real protein booster. The nut butter has healthy fats and makes this smoothie super creamy and oats are packed with fiber to keep us satisfied and our gut happy.
