Jack, our Icon trainer is passionate about good nutrition and loves to fuel his body well to get the most out of his training and his lifestyle. He also loves tasty food, and believes that good nutrition doesn’t need to be boring. Check out Jack’s favourite post workout smoothie that is high in protein and carbohydrate. The high carb, high protein combo helps to replenish muscle and liver glycogen stores after a hard workout, and also kick start the recovery phase!
Chocolate Banana Smoothie
- 1 frozen or fresh Banana
- 1 cup of Ice
- 1-2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1-2 cup of milk of choice. Jack prefers unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 tablespoon of honey
Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Pour into your favourite glass and enjoy alongside your post workout endorphins.
Healthy smoothies are a great meal replacement option for those who need breakfast on the go, or can’t eat a meal after a training session, due to time constraints. Remember, you need to work hard to earn that smoothie!
