Supergreen Smoothie: A Boost after your Run

supergreen-smoothieBy increasing your daily consumption of leafy greens, you will provide your body with lots of micronutrients that will help with your exercise and training, and provide great health benefits. A quick and easy way to include supergreens within your diet is to simply add some greens into a smoothie — doing this actually doesn’t change the flavour, only adds lots of nutrients. A smoothie combined with nut butter for protein, fruits, coconut water or almond milk, flax seeds or avocados, will give you a healthy boost and replenish your energy stores after a long run.

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup kale

  • 1/2 cup mango
  • 1 banana
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp spirulina
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp flaxseeds

 

Combine all the ingredients in a blender, mix, and enjoy!
