Working out, whether it’s a run or weight training session, happens first thing in the morning for me. I usually train on a mostly empty tank: half a banana, some orange juice, some pre-workout mix. But when I get back, I’m hungry. Here’s the recipe for the protein-packed smoothie I make almost every time.
- 1/2 banana (frozen, if you like a little chill in the drink)
- 1 cup greens (I like baby kale and spinach)
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
