This was the featured smoothie at the Swet Haus and STIR class in November.

 This protein/carbo rich, nutrient dense smoothie is the ideal combo for post-exercise re-fueling. It is close to the ideal ratio of 4:1[CHO/protein].

 Try to consume within 30-45 minutes post exercise for maximal uptake and benefits.

 15 grams protein, high in potassium, vit. a, fiber, calcium, pro-biotics, and it’s anti-inflammatory and lo-glycemic!

  • ½ cup sweet potato or pumpkin puree [vit a]
  • ½ large banana [potassium]
