After hitting the gym for an intense workout, many run to a powdered protein shake packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, but also loaded with fillers, sweeteners and artificial flavors. Some of these shakes are made from quality ingredients, but most are junk food in disguise.
A raw, natural and delicious remedy to your workout recovery is a shake I have been making for a while now and came across through the Renegade Health Show. I provided some links to their store, but all of these powders can be found on Amazon. Here is Kevin Gianni recipe:
After Workout Recovery Shake:
- 1 Mango
- 2 Bananas
- Water of 2 coconuts
- 1-2 tablespoons of ground chia seed (I grind the seeds fresh in a mortar and pestle due to the instability of the natural oils)
- 2 tablespoons chlorella
- 2 tablespoons plant protein (spirulina, Warrior Food, or Sun Warrior)
- 1 tablespoon vitamin C
- 1/2 teaspoon kelp powder
Blend and enjoy!!
