The best post-workout smoothie. You’re supposed to eat protein-rich foods up to 30 minutes after your workout. I’m not going to pretend to know why. I’m not a doctor or a scientist. Although I do know it’s connected to building and restoring muscles. So there.
If you’re anything like me, you’re not thinking about food as soon as you workout. A solid meal is just out of the question. Nuts and hemp seeds are a good vegan source of protein and make amazing smoothies. Smoothies are easier to get down when you’re not starved.
1/2 cup all-natural nut butter (peanut and almond are best)
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 cup dairy-free milk (soy, almond, hemp carry the most protein)
