This smoothie has “nutrient-loaded recovery” written all over it. It’s creamy, cool and fruity with a hint of chocolate. Your body will be infused with clean, unprocessed carbs and a complete, fast-acting protein source in a performance-enhancing 3-to-1 ratio. Blend one up two hours or so before your workout, or 30 minutes to two hours after your workout. This smoothie will top off your glycogen stores and amino acid pools for maximum endurance and optimal recovery.
