Endurance Recovery Smoothy

You have just finished with a long bike ride, run or hard workout. Go for the recovery drink with the natural source of macro and micro nutrients.  It's important to drink it within 1/2 hour after your workout as a part of your recovery strategy!

In a quality blender:
3/4 c fresh pineapple
4 frozen strawberries
1/2 c frozen blueberries
1/2 beet diced
1 small carrot chopped
1 handful of greens (spinach, kale or beet greens)
1 tablespoon natural nut butter (peanut is fine)
1 small banana
1/3 brick of silken tofu (or use 1/2 c unflavored non-dairy milk)
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
Blend on high adding enough water to get the right consistency.

Experiment using different fruits that you have available such as mixed berries and fresh nectarines.

Have some left over? Pour it in a to go bottle and freeze it, then take it with you for your next workout!
