Superfruit Smoothie Recipe

Why are smoothies more satisfying right after hitting the gym? If this is also your question, you’re on the right page.

When you workout, you tend to get dehydrated. You’re tired and your muscles are worn out, which is why you might’ve heard a lot of stories about some folks hitting the buffet table right after workout. However, that doesn’t make sense at all, unless you’re trying to gain weight.

This Superfruit Smoothie Recipe though will not only give you a refreshing fruity taste but it’ll also provide tons of antioxidants that will surely help you in your weight loss journey. Oh, did I mention that they also have anti-aging benefits? Cool!

Although a single serving of this recipe only provides 2 grams of protein, it gives 7 grams of fiber and a considerable amount of potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium. But, you can always add some Greek yogurt to increase the protein content of this recipe, especially if you just did strength training. Protein not only makes you feel fuller but it also helps repair those worn-out muscles.

Without further ado, here’s the Superfruit Smoothie Recipe that y’all will surely love.

Happy Blending!
