Muscle Recovery Smoothie
By Cornelius Bounds, CPT Serves 1
One important thing to keep in mind when you're done working out is muscle recovery. Every time you work out, you are tearing down muscles and then rebuilding them. Protein is essential in replenishing, repairing, and rebuilding your muscles. Protein makes up basically everything in your body. In fact, the only thing our body has more of than protein is water. This muscle recovery smoothie is a must after any hard workout!

At 500 calories, this recipe packs more energy than a typical meal & its more than most burn in a workout. The balance of carbs & protein in yogurt alone is enough to refuel the fire & tide you over until mealtime.
Add milk, yogurt, and banana, then blend.
Add peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) and the frozen strawberries, blend again.
At this point you can see that the smoothie is pretty thick. If you want a thinner consistency, go ahead and add some more milk. Enjoy!
