Happy New Year, friends. Real life update: we’re on the road in snowy New England for our final stops exploring high schools for Addie. I’ve gone a little off the deep end temporarily with January reset mentality. And the world is cold. More on two of those three items later.
For today, a smoothie. If you’re also in deep-end mode, or if you’re just a person who likes raspberries and the gym, this Raspberry Chia Post-Workout smoothie is your jam. (Well, your smoothie, anyway.) It’s vegan and gluten-free and macronutrient-balanced to aid in muscle recovery after a tough workout.
It’s bright and fruity and a little bit creamy from almond milk and hemp seed magic. And it’s packed with relatively low-glycemic berries. Win win win win win win win.
Talk to you soon.
Raspberry Chia Post-Workout Smoothie
This vibrant smoothie is macronutrient-balanced to aid in muscle recovery after a workout. It's quite thick, and it's hardly sweet since raspberries are so low-glycemic and there are several creamy ingredients. If you'd like more sweetness, add a little bit of your sweetener of choice, from a chopped Medjool date to a tablespoon or two of maple syrup to a few drops of liquid stevia, which won't change the macronutrient balance.
- 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Place all ingredients in blender and process until perfectly smooth. Serve immediately.
