Runner Girl’s Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie

Strawberries and bananas. While they create an incredibly delectable combination of flavors, they are also both packed with amazing nutrients to consume after a hard work-out/run! Both help to aid in the recovery process and bananas are a great source of good carbs and replenish the electrolytes that we lose when we perspire. For more on bananas, check this page:

Strawberries and berries in general have a ton of antioxidants. Strawberries even support the immune system and do some crazy other things for you like preventing wrinkles and cancer. For more on strawberries:

Runner Girl’s Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie

  • 1 cup whole frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 large banana sliced
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla soy protein isolate
  • Splash of Water, 2-3 tbsp.
  • Splash of 1% milk, 2-3 tbsp.

Combine all and blend. I have a Magic Bullet blender and love it very much! This is about 210 calories, give or take with your milk. So thick, creamy, and sweet; it’s a very satisfying treat to have after your work-out 🙂
