POST-WORKOUT GREEN SMOOTHIE
You just rocked that tough workout! Now what? It’s super important to replenish the nutrients in your body and fuel your body with the right foods to help rebuild your muscles. Any post-workout green smoothie should AT LEAST have a good amount of protein, healthy carbs, and liquid for rehydration. This green smoothie hits all of those requirements as long as you include those chia seeds. We also highly recommend using coconut water (“nature’s Gatorade”), but you can get by with regular H O. Go ahead and enjoy this smoothie… you’ve earned it!
