Want to know what it takes to be a professional boxer and table tennis champ? Well, it’s hard work, grit and dedication… but also this tasty smoothie bowl! Linn, our trainer for Knockout, loves this little combo so much, and she eats it either as a pre workout energy hit, or after as a refreshing recovery snack. Bananas are a great source of carbohydrates to either fuel or refuel working muscles and they are also high in potassium. Potassium is a mineral that functions as an electrolyte in the body, helping to regulate muscle contractions, fluid balance and nerve signals. Meanwhile, the antioxidants in berries may help to reduce muscle pain and inflammation.
