Try our smoothie recipe for a Protein Mango Post Workout Smoothie
Have you thought about the fact that your workout isn’t truly done until you’ve refueled! And, smoothies are the perfect way to refuel your body post-workout. You’re able to quickly get the protein you need to build muscle, antioxidants that fight cell damage and inflammation, and the carbs to restore glycogen that your muscles burned during your workout.
What you do need to try to do is to make sure you get a minimum of 15-20 grams of protein in your shake, with the rest being carbs. Plus – you might be surprised by this – you also need a little bit of fat. That little bit of fat helps you process both the protein and carbs!
