³ Description

This is recovery smoothie for gym-goers that helps muscles bounce back fast after an intense workout. Cherries and ginger both have anti-inflammatory properties, and are good for pain relief.

² Ingredients

   

q Directions

1/2 C cherries (fresh or frozen)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 in piece of fresh ginger, grated
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp Guar Gum (optional)
1/4-1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
Ice, to taste
1 C spinach (optional)

Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
Notes:
You can adjust the milk and ice to suit your preference. I like my smoothies super thick, so I use more ice and less milk.
Guar Gum is optional, but I recommend investing in some. It’s often used as a binder and volume-enhancer in ice creams and shakes, making them more creamy and thick.
I include a giant handful of spinach in nearly all of my protein smoothies. I swear you can’t taste it. This is a great way to sneak in another serving of greens and add a little more iron to your diet to promote muscle health and energy metabolism. Warning: Spinach will turn your pretty red smoothie a funky green color!
