There is nothing quite as satisfying as an ice cold smoothie after a super sweaty workout or run.

If you don’t look like a sweaty troll after your workout, it wasn’t hard enough. Or you’re just way luckier than I am.

I used to workout and then not eat anything for hours…and I wondered why I had blood sugar issues. As a Diabetic, I now have to test my blood sugar before and after working out so I can inject insulin or eat, depending on the levels and it’s really important that I eat or drink something high in protein within 1 hour of my sweat fest.

My latest favorite protein smoothie combo has about 30 grams of protein- which is perfect. My goal is 30 grams of protein for snacks and 50 for meals.

Coconut Banana Berry Protein Smoothie

6-10 ice cubes (I like to add a lot of ice to make the smoothie thicker)

1 large handful spinach

1 cup coconut milk

1 cup coconut water

1/2 banana

1 cup raspberies

1 scoop protein powder ( I use vanilla whey powder)

Blend and enjoy!
