Ingredients
  • 100g spinach
  • 1 scoop porridge oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein
  • 1 scoop almond nuts
  • 1 apple
  • 1 scoop flax seeds (optional)
  • Water

There's no better way to refuel, after a gruelling workout, than a delicious smoothie – a mix of all the macro- and micronutrients you need.

The carbohydrates restore your glycogen, while the protein sets in motion the vital process of rebuilding.

Here's one of our faves!

Instructions

Step 1

This is best done in a Nutri-Bullet or similar – but any blender will do. Lay out your ingredients, and it will only take about a minute to complete.

Step 2

Here's the nifty trick – fitting all these ingredients into a 700ml cup may prove a bit tricky. So do it in two batches. First, put in the spinach oats with the water about halfway up to the 'max' line.

Step 4

Now chuck in the rest – and be sure to throw the protein powder in last so it doesn't stick to the side of the cup.

Step 5

Blitzy blitz (part 2) and DUNZO!

Easy peasy – and surprisingly delish!
