Secret Workout Smoothie
I have in my hands the most delicious recipe for an amazing pre or post-workout shake. This smoothie works great for a quick burst of long lasting energy, combining the powerful health benefits of superfoods with carbohydrates and protein. The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
2 large frozen bananas
2 ice cubes
1/2 cup almond milk (homemade from scratchy scratch)
1 tbsp almond butter (optional)
2 - 3 dates
1 tbsp lucuma powder
1/2 - 1 tsp maca powder
dash of cinnamon
Blend ingredients in a personal blender and serve topped with a dash of cinnamon and some cacao nibs. Enjoy!
