Pre-Workout Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie

Good evening, Tribe! *insert goofy smile here* I’ve started working on an eBook (that’s keeping me pretty busy) putting together tips for getting started with a healthy lifestyle change. I’ve learned so much over the years, and I want to put it all into simple steps that anyone can follow! I can’t wait to share it with you guys. Be on the lookout for it this winter & let me know if you have any specific questions that you need answered 🙂

Lately my meals have been THE SAME every week. Nothing new. Nothing exciting. Just fuel. This morning I was rushing to get ready for my workout and didn’t have time to cook, so I opted for a protein smoothie! It definitely served its purpose and got me through a TOUGH chest and triceps workout. Check out the recipe below!

This is about 1/2 of the smoothie. 

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups strawberries, frozen

1 ripe banana, frozen

3 cups spinach

1 1/2 tsp spirulina

1/2 – 1 scoop protein powder

1 – 2 cups almond milk

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Blend greens, spirulina and almond milk (or liquid of choice).
  2. Add in frozen fruit and protein powder.
  3. Drink up!

This smoothie is about 460 calories with 72g of carbs, 8g of fat, 37g of protein & vitamins/minerals for days. It’s a great way to fuel your workout or recovery after!

If you guys have any recipes that I should try OR if you need some ideas for meals, comment below or send me a message ❤

Have a great night!
