Post Workout Smoothie – Aid for Recovery

This post workout smoothie recipe comes from the website Prevention.com.

It is considered to be a post workout smoothie because of:

  1. The beet will reduce inflammation and improve blood flow
  2. Kale really does live up to the hype, providing a large number of minerals and vitamins to support your physical exercise

Plus, this simple smoothie tastes really good too!

In you favorite smoothie blender mix:

  • 1 cup silken tofu (confused about the difference between regular and “silken” tofu? Follow this link for the facts)
  • Half a cup frozen (or fresh) cranberries

  • Half a medium cucumber
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 orange, peeled and quartered, or half a cup fresh orange juice
