Post Workout Smoothie

A basic smoothie recipe is useful in two situations: for folks who need to gain or maintain weight, and for athletes looking for a way to eat whey protein after a workout. Here’s my post-workout smoothie recipe.

In a blender, mix to dissolve the protein powder:

  • 1 scoop organic, grass-fed whey protein
  • ½ cup of water

For nutrition and flavor, add:

  • ½ cup fresh or frozen berries
  • ½ cup coconut milk (The best milk commercially available comes in a can, not a carton. Look for a can that is BPA free.)  

Consider adding:

  • For neurological health and weight loss: 2-4 Tbsp MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil or coconut oil
  • For a more savory smoothie, substitute half an avocado for the berries
  • For weight gain: ½ banana
