Summer is here and that always makes workouts more challenging. I am a long distance runner, and this summer my training involves many long runs in the heat in preparation for fall marathons and ultra marathons. I am doing my first 50 miler this fall! An important part of exercise is staying hydrated, replacing electrolytes lost through perspiration, and  refueling after a workout. I find that a great way to do that is to add Emergen-C to a post-workout smoothie.

Emergen- C comes in a variety of flavors and contains 1,000 mg of Vitamin C for immune support.  It has more Vitamin C than 10 oranges! It also contains electrolytes, which are great after exercise to replace electrolytes lost through perspiration. It also adds 7 B vitamins to naturally enhance energy.*

For this smoothie recipe, I picked up a box of tangerine Emergen-C at Walgreens. They also are offering a June promotion in which you can buy 1 Emergen-C 30 count box and get 1 Dasani 1 Liter free. That came in handy since I am using water in my recipe to keep the smoothie light.  I choose a combination of watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberries to provide some good post-workout carbohydrates, yet still keep the smoothie light and refreshing. The fruit selection, especially cantaloupe, is also high in potassium to add to the electrolyte mix. This smoothie has a whopping 1078g of potassium! I love that for after a run! This also is a fairly low calorie smoothie. It has a fair amount of carbs to help you refuel but it is diet friendly.

Making the smoothie is easy. If using the Nutribullet, fill your cup with a selection of watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberries (about 1 cup each).  Add a package of Emergen-C in your favorite flavor (I used tangerine), and add about 4 ice cubes. Then add water to fill line and blend.  If using a regular blender, I listed ingredient amounts in the recipe box. I actually have taken to using my Nutribullet Rx like a standard blender, using the pitcher instead of using the cups.  Emergen-C comes in individual packets, so one box will give you enough for a lot of smoothies. You can also mix it with water and drink it on its own.

Emergen C

The smoothie comes out quite frothy, which I love in summer. Emergen-C has a bit of fizz to it, and the use of ice makes it extra frothy. It has a light refreshing flavor that really tastes great after a run, outdoor workout, bike ride, or really anytime that you have been working up a sweat and want a refreshing healthy drink.

You can buy Emergen-C at Walgreens. I found it at the start of the Vitamin aisle.
