Here is an easy banana smoothie recipe that I like for after running.
Banana is a favorite snack of athletes, including myself. It helps balance and stabilize energy levels which can improve endurance during training.
Aside from that, banana is a rich source of potassium which is known to help prevent muscle cramps. This healthy and energizing smoothie is a perfect companion of exercise and training.
The almonds, yogurt and whey protein are added to give the drink a good post workout boost of protein to help with muscle building and recovery.
You can leave out the whey if you want a bit less protein and less calories. You can also substitute any protein powder.
