Whether you’re recovering from a long run or a long day, the moms on our 2015 Boston Marathon Team have the recovery smoothies you need.
Purple Power Smoothie
Angela from Happy Fit Mama is a smart mama indeed. Every time she makes a smoothie she packs it full of veggies and protein. She does this because she knows her kids will want to try whatever smoothie she makes, and it’s an easy way to get their daily veggies in! And really, who can pass up a purple smoothie at any age?
¼ cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen wild blueberries
½ ripe avocado
1 tbsp chia seeds
2/3 cup Stonyfield Organic Plain Greek Yogurt
1 cup Stonyfield Organic Milk
Blend together and drink!
Tina from Carrots N’ Cake has deliciousness in mind with this smoothie. It’s important to refresh your body with the electrolytes it loses while working out, but it’s also important to make sure it’s something you’ll want to drink again!
1 cup frozen cherries (without pits)
6 oz Stonyfield Organic Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. For an even thicker and more satisfying smoothie, add 1/4 cup of rolled oats along with an additional 1/2 cup of almond milk before blending.
Janae from Hungry Runner Girl realizes that you need to make sure you are taking in quality calories and not just any calories post-run. She made this delicious smoothie for her and her daughter to share, but after one sip, they both realized she needed one for each of them.
5.3 oz container of Stonyfield Organic Vanilla Greek Yogurt (we have tried the plain flavor for this smoothie too and that is also delicious!)
1 tbsp almond butter
3-4 ice cubes
1/3 cup Stonyfield Organic Milk
1 frozen banana
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chia seeds
Janae said you could experiment by adding spinach for more protein!
