Smoothies are everything you need on a warm day, they keep you cool and are busting of vitamins. If you want a very fresh smoothie it’s nice to add some frozen fruit to it. I always save some frozen bananas, raspberries and other fruits in my freezer to use for smoothies. This creamy cherry protein smoothie is perfect as a post workout snack, because it contains all you need after a powerful workout.
Protein powder is important for the recovery of your muscles and it makes the smoothie super creamy. I’ve used protein powder from Fitshe, which is sweetened with freeze-dried strawberries. So yum! Also, I’ve added a banana to the smoothie, bananas contain potassium which helps to restore your moisture balance again. Moreover, the quick carbs in the banana are important too. They’ll restore your energy level again, which you’ve used during training. And did you know cherries are high in vitamin A? Vitamin A is good for your eyes and a healthy skin. This all together makes a delicious smoothie full of healthy benefits.
