Smoothies are an easy way to get fueled on the move. I've used them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and pre/post workout. They are versatile and I enjoy getting creative with them.
This one is smooth, creamy, and packed with nutrients. It utilizes avocado for a healthy fat component. Healthy fats keep the body satisfied and when you are completing an endurance workout (long slow distance) your body burns a higher percentage of fat so you need to fuel accordingly. The bananas supply a natural sweetness and carbohydrates that can be burned more quickly for energy. Adding protein powder rounds out the macronutrients and also allows this to be a great option of refueling post workout.
+ 1 Avocado
+ 1 Banana
+ 1 c 100% Fresh OJ
+ 1 c Coconut Milk
+ 1 c Coconut Water
+ 2 tbsp sweetened coconut flakes
+ 1 scoop Whey Protein Powder
+ 1 tbsp Bee Pollen
+ 1 tbsp Hemp Seeds
+ 1 scoop Matcha & Lemon Scratch Labs Mix (optional)
Blend all the ingredients and ENJOY!
I like to take my too ripe avocados & bananas, peel them and freeze them. This way they are ready to toss into smoothies & contribute a creamy texture.
