A well balanced, nutritious meal several hours before working out is all you need before you hit the gym. But when you’re short on time, or need an extra boost, this pre-workout is a delicious way to fuel up!
Wise Up Workout Smoothie (Pre & Post Workout Recovery Protein Shake)
28g Mulberry (and/or Frozen Banana)
8oz Rice Milk, Almond Milk, or Coconut Water
50g Vanilla Whey Protein Isolate
If you’re in need of a workout supplement, skip the vitamin store. Get in the kitchen, make a wise decision.
The Wise Up Smoothie is the perfect option when you need to fuel up or recover from a workout. It is low-fat, high protein, high carb, which is exactly what you want in a pre or post workout.
I have a smoothie like this every single day. There’s nothing like it after a hard workout. Smooth, creamy, delicious, and exactly what my muscles need after they’ve been pushed to the limit. Drinking it is one of my favorite parts of the day.
Start with two scoops of whey protein isolate, about 50g. I use naturally sweetened, grass fed vanilla protein. Whey protein is fantastic for losing body fat and/or building muscle. If you’re not getting enough protein in your diet, it’s time to Wise Up!
Blueberries and mulberries provide vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and healthy carb sources. Rice milk and coconut water are great options for a fast digesting carbohydrate, which is exactly what your body is craving for exercise fuel. I sometimes use almond milk with a banana, as well. Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and contains other antioxidants. Stevia is a natural sweetener that has zero calories and offers some health benefits. Blended together, it’s an amazingly tasty and healthy treat that’s going to help keep your health on track.
If you’re lifting weights, which you should be, add 5g creatine, one of the few natural supplements that’s clinically proven to enhance performance, muscle growth, and recovery.
