My Favorite Morning Post-Workout Smoothie Recipe

I don't know where this recipe originated but it's been my go-to for a while now. While I do love a good fruit and berry smoothie every once in a while, this one is more of a cookie batter variety, if you will. It's easy, delicious, and extremely flexible with all kinds of potential add-ins. Plus it has a lot of protein (give or take around 25g). Bonus!

Easy Post-Workout Morning Smoothie

1 handful spinach (around 1 cup. Go nuts, you won't taste it)
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (my personal favorite is arbonne but a lot of people like Vega and Perfect Fit too)
1 tbsp peanut butter OR almond butter
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup almond milk (more or less, depending on how think or thin you like your smoothies) or other milk of choice

That's it! Blend, pour, drink, enjoy. Need some variations? Here are a few I've tried:

-adding 1 tbsp cacao powder
-subbing 1 tbsp coconut oil for the nut butter
-adding 1 tsp maca powder
-swapping kale for spinach
-adding a tbsp or two of coconut flakes
