3 weeks ago I started a 12 week workout program which completely drains me after every session, but I still have things to do and a toddler running around so I’ve been making this smoothie after my workouts for an energy boost. B loves them as an afternoon snack too so it’s a win win for us! I have a few other smoothie recipes on my blog that I consistently make, but this one is the recipe I have been making recently as my post workout smoothie.
Smoothies are definitely one of my favorite healthy snacks/meals to make throughout the day. They’re easy and most of the time you can just toss in whatever raw fruits or vegetables you have in your kitchen and it’ll come out tasting good. It’s a great way to sneak green veggies into your diet. My daughter LOVES smoothies and has no idea that most of them either have kale or avocado in them 😉
You don’t have to drink this only after a workout it’s just what I have been doing lately! This recipe would be great for a snack or breakfast too. We will be making smoothies all summer to get us through this Texas heat! 😉
- 1 avocado (pitted)
- 8-10 strawberries
- 1 cup kale leaves
- 1/2-1 cup blueberries
- 1 banana
- 6oz yogurt (flavor optional)
- 12oz almond milk
- 2 tablespoons flax seed
Blend until smooth! I use my Ninja blender for smoothies.
Note: I try and freeze both my strawberries and blueberries because I think it tastes better. If you don’t use frozen fruit you might want to throw in a few ice cubes to make your smoothie cold.
Note: 12 oz of almond milk is how much I start out with, but based on what type of consistency the smoothie is I will add more while blending. The more liquid you add the less thick the smoothie will be.
