Fuel Up: Break(FAST) Smoothies

Starting your day off with an early morning run can jump start your day. Who would have thought running would be the easiest part of your morning and refueling could be the most challenging? Today’s recipe makes your post-run breakfast quick and painless.

Our Blog Ambassador Jesica from rUnladylike provided us with her two favorite protein smoothie recipes. Both recipes have the right balance of protein and carbs to make sure you’re not  devouring your lunch before noon!

Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie

Blend the following ingredients until smooth:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon raw almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 scoop of chocolate flavored protein powder

To thicken, add ice until your desired consistency is reached. To make thinner, add more almond milk or water.

Strawberries and Cream Protein Smoothie

Blend the following ingredients until smooth:

  • 1 cup plain almond milk
  • 4-5 frozen strawberries
  • 1-2 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 scoop strawberry flavored protein powder

To make thicker, add more strawberries. To make thinner, add more almond milk or water until desired consistency is reached.

Drink up, the rest of your day is waiting!

    Thank you so much for sharing these! I make the chocolate banana smoothie at least once a week. Sometimes I love to add a tablespoon of raw almond butter or peanut butter. Happy running! xoxo
