We’ve developed a great post workout smoothie which can be blitzed together in a jiffy. This smoothie is fresh and natural - exactly what your body needs after exercising. We’ve chosen nutrient dense ingredients which will boost your body to function optimally. Coconut water is excellent after a good workout because it boosts your electrolytes, increases your energy levels and balances your blood sugar levels. We’ve added in fresh strawberries as these are filled with powerful antioxidants that keep you youthful, help lower your blood pressure, balance your blood sugar levels and help maintain good cardiovascular health. These are all essential for your body to recover after a good workout.
Carrots, mangos and oranges – all contain beta-carotene, which helps to naturally protect you from the sun- from the inside out! They also contain fibre - essential for cleansing your colon and aiding in the efficient elimination of waste. If you have a clean colon, then your body is able to absorb nutrients effectively. All four of these ingredients contain vitamins- specifically vitamin C, thus boosting the immune system, which is especially good with the current colder winter weather.
