30 smoothies in 30 days (day 6): pineapple paradise

What you put into your body after a workout is pretty dang important. You want something light, something that has protein and carbs and if it aids in muscle recovery that is even better.

This is a great post workout fuel option. I usually add pineapple to my post workout smoothies. Pineapples are anti-inflammatory and amazing for helping muscle recovery and alleviating any muscle soreness. This smoothie is great for post workout nausea as well. Sometimes if I hit the gym a little too hard I may get nauseous (especially if I do fasted cardio) and the ginger and lemon in this smoothie helps to balance out my stomach.

This smoothie is tropical tasting thanks to the coconut yogurt and refreshing. It’s a favorite of mine.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ribs celery
  • 1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • ½ banana
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 1/3 coconut yogurt
  • 6 ounces filtered water

Directions:

Add all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Enjoy immediately.

stay tropical,

I believe in big hair and and live by the 5 (sometimes 10) second rule when food falls on the ground. I want to create a greener, simpler life for my little family while at the same time sharing everything I eat, yoga poses I try, and ideas about life with my smartphone attached to my hip. I'm sort of a hot mess living by the motto "fake it until you make it."
