Let’s be honest- sometimes the only thing that gets me through my runs is the promise of a smoothie at the end. A smoothie that packs lots of nutrients and a little bit of protein is the perfect lunch or post run snack. After my long runs I usually buy myself a smoothie for a treat, but can’t really justify it 5 times a week. Because it is entirely too much work to make a smoothie evvvery daaay (the cleaning lady doesnt come daily??) I make one big batch and put them into popsicle molds, and have a freezer full of healthy smoothie pops that I can eat as-is or put into a glass in the fridge to melt before my run.
Afterwards I feel light and healthy. Some people like protein powder, but I’ve tried it and makes me feel like I have cement in my stomach. If you’re a protein powder person you can add it, the possibilities are infinite.
What are your favorite smoothies?
