Green Rehydration

This post-workout smoothie contains  the  perfect combination of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes that your body needs to replenish and recover after an intense training session.

Ingredients :

  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 frozen banana (or unfrozen)
  • 1 handful of spinach (you can add any other leafy green instead)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger or 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ginger
  • 8 oz coconut water
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Optional - Add a tablespoon of favorite protein powder.

Celery contains anti-inflammatory properties and is a great source of sodium. Bananas are high in potassium and spinach is high in magnesium. Together with the hydrating coconut water and protein of your choice it makes a delicious and great post-sweat smoothie.

Cheers!
