A sweet blend of flavors that satisfy the recovery hormones and taste buds at the same time! Sometimes after a hard workout, I am not in the mood for solid food. A protein smoothie is a great way to refuel and not upset the belly.
1/2 cup cooked sweet potatoes (hint: you can cook a large sweet potato and then remove the skin and freeze the potato in an ice cube tray for multiple future smoothie prep)
1/2 cup greek yogurt OR cottage cheese
6 ice cubes
1 scoop whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger spice
1/4 cup water or milk
stevia or sweetener to taste
Blend all ingredients and top with candied pecans, dried coconut, cacao nibs, granola etc!
