Im usually not one for smoothies as I find it hard to fit in the necessary number of calories into a small cup, but in a pinch they are a good way to get some solid food in you as opposed to a powdered shake.
This morning after my swim I concocted this little gem, it was delicious and high in essential nutrients for post workout.
1/2 cup – low fat milk (I use lactaid milk because Im lactose intolerant) Almond milk, coconut or soy could also work.
1/4 cup- dry Steel cut oats
2 tbsp- Natural Almond Butter
1/4 cup- frozen fruit (I used a strawberry, peach, mango mix)
1 Tbsp- Raw, shelled, Hemp Hearts
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
This recipe is 575 calories. Combined with about 2-300cal pre-workout and 100-200 during your workout you should be fuelled to start your day!
