The Everyday Breakfast and Post-Workout Smoothie

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.

Best post-workout smoothie ingredients


  • 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
Put everything in the blender. Blend until liquified. 
See? Totally simple, and totally great for staying on track.
