Get A Boost Before Exercise With This High Energy Smoothie!
This delicious Strawberry Banana smoothie recipe will be a great way to help fuel your next big workout.
The natural sugar in the bananas will provide the energy your muscles need while the protein powder will supply the amino acids that are required to support muscle growth and regeneration.
The addition of strawberries will provide a hearty dose of vitamin C, which will help support your immune system and combat free radical damage, while also bringing some added fibre to the smoothie.
The almond milk adds a small dose of healthy fats along with a nice creamy taste.
This is coupled with the xanthan gum for added thickness.
If you prefer, you can swap out some almond milk for coconut milk instead to increase the total fat content of this smoothie.
