Rehydration Smoothie – Green Style!

8 Aug

If you haven’t noticed – it’s summer!  And it’s HOT.  Of course, that isn’t enough to keep us from the Studio, but the combination of the hot weather, outside activities, and keeping up your exercise routine can leave your body dehydrated and tired.   Here is a great recipe for keeping your body hydrated and healthy while on-the-go!  I prefer to drink one of these after my workout AND if you’re using it as a meal replacement, go ahead and add about 1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats for a boost of fiber, thickness, and energy sustainment. Cheers!

GREEN-STYLE HYDRATION SMOOTHIEgreensmoothie

-1 celery stalk
-1 small frozen banana (if you don’t want the sugar, substitute a handful of berries)
-half of a small avocado
-1 large handful baby spinach or kale
-1 tbsp. plant-based protein powder (I prefer hemp protein powder for texture)
-1/2 tsp. fresh grated ginger
-1 cup coconut water (you could also use almond milk, soy milk, or just plain water here)
-juice of half a lime
-a few mint leaves, optional

In a high-powered blender, blend all ingredients until completely smooth. Chill if desired. This smoothie is best enjoyed the day it is made!  I like splitting it into two portions and enjoying one in the morning and one in the afternoon for a boost!

Serves 1-2

Remember:  You only have one body – treat it that way!  🙂
