Shake Up Your Workout With These Post-Workout Smoothies

Summer is nearly upon us and I have to admit, I love smoothies. I’ve had health conscious friends tell me they’re all the carbs and none of the fibre, and this is probably true – but frankly all things in moderation and I LOVE smoothies!

Smoothies are an awesome way to cool off after a workout. If you’ve been hitting the gym, feel free to add your regular protein powder to these delicious, cooling, smoothies!

Smoothies are a quick way to re-fuel and start recovery. Plus they’re delicious.
