Recipe: Alex's Post-Workout Smoothies


I am all about getting my greens in. It’s honestly the only way I can poop regularly... TMI?

This is my go-to smoothie recipe that I usually make after I workout!

Alex's Post-Workout Smoothie


  • 1 banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • A hand full of frozen blueberries
  • Two handfuls of kale/spinach
  • 1 cup of almond milk
Scoop of protein powder vanilla or chocolate flavored. I prefer to use Vega. It’s plant based and as a ton of good shit in it! It’s really expensive in stores but hello cheap via Amazon!

Another fun alternative recipe I like (especially if I have Vega’s chocolate flavored) is:

  • 1 frozen banana

  • A handful of frozen blueberries

  • 1 cup of almond milk

  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter

  • A scoop of chocolate Vega Protein Powder

  • Two handfuls of greens


It’s like a healthy milkshake! See, getting your daily amount of greens and other good shit really is easy and tasty too!
