The Best After Workout Protein Smoothie



Happy Wednesday!! Today I want to talk smoothies in particular protein smoothies. I feel like over the years I've heard 5 million different things about what makes the "perfect" protein smoothie. When it comes down to it I think everyone should do what feels good to them. There's nothing wrong with taking a little bit from here and a little bit from there and making something your own! That being said, over the past few months I have found myself making one smoothie over and over again for my post-workout protein fix. I wanted to share it will you all just in case you need some guidance on how to make a protein smoothie that packs a punch!

Now I do have to give credit to Kelly LeVeque  this concept is totally her idea! To give you a general idea of her smoothie concept it's called the Fab 4; protein, greens, fiber and fat make up this "Fab 4" to give you the nutrients to keep you full for a while. We all know that protein is very important for post-workout recovery try getting in some protein within 30 minutes after your workout. Greens are a no brainer, you can use spinach, kale, arugula, etc. such an easy way to get lots of vitamins and minerals without tasting a thing! Fiber is so important for digestion and to keep you full longer; examples of fiber are chia seeds or flax seeds. Lastly, we add some fat! Don't be afraid of a good healthy fat such as avocado, coconut oil or a nut butter.

You can use any combination of ingredients to follow this concept but I'm going to share my go-to recipe!

Maddy's Protein Smoothie 

* 1 scoop plant based chocolate protein powder (one I'm using now)
* Handful of spinach
* 1-2 scoops of chia seeds
* 1 large spoonful of peanut butter
* 2-3 cubes of ice
* 1- 1 1/2 cups of almond milk (less liquid = thicker smoothie) 
* Moon Juice Dust (this is an added thing I've been using for a couple weeks now, learn more here)

Blend and enjoy!!

XOXO, Maddy
