Healthy Post Workout Smoothie

By Dr. Ben Kim

Just a brief look in photos at how I make my favorite post-workout smoothie, rich in flavor and healthy protein.

All you need are frozen bananas, your favorite nut butter, and some almond milk or any other non-dairy milk. Plus a good blender, of course.

Start with two frozen bananas. It's best if you use bananas that were frozen in pieces and when ripe. Use the equivalent of two medium size bananas for each large smoothie you wish to make.


Add one heaping tablespoon of nut butter for every two frozen bananas in the mix. For this batch, I used organic peanut butter.


Now add about a cup and a half of almond milk or any other non dairy milk for every smoothie you're making. If your bananas weren't fairly ripe when you froze them, you can add a teaspoon of honey per smoothie at this point as well.


Blend until rich and creamy, and then you'll have it - an all-natural, protein-rich post-workout smoothie that will optimally nourish your body.


For efficient replenishment of glycogen stores within your skeletal muscles, it's best to drink this type of smoothie within one hour of exercising.

If you dig Reese Peanut Butter Cup-like flavor, add one teaspoon of raw chocolate powder per smoothie before blending.
