My Favorite Post-Workout Smoothie.

I remember when I first started working out with my trainer. She put me on a verrrrry clean meal plan (which I need to be better at sticking to, especially after Europe)! I had a really hard time at first. I am more of a savory person so I didn’t expect myself to miss a little something sweet as much as I did, but I suddenly had a major craving for sweets. And so she turned me onto the Peanut Butter Split smoothie at Juice Generation. It’s become my favorite. Either I will stop at Juice Generation on my way home from a workout or make this as soon as I get home.ย Note that Alex recommends having this right after you work out,ย as a meal... and preferably before 5pm (I’m not supposed to have carbs after 5pm when I’m sticking to my plan. The best time to have carbs is right after a workout. I typically work out with her around 10:30am and then have this for lunch at noon.

Ingredients:

  • One cup milk of your choice (my favorite is coconut milk)
  • One frozen organic banana
  • One scoop protein powder (I love this one)
  • 2 Tbsp. organic Peanutbutter (I love Justin’s)
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Blend it all in a high-power blender* and you’re done! So so yummy, and so healthy!

*This Vitamix is my favorite! The to-go smoothie container is fantastic and the smaller size is great if you live in a smaller space like I do. It’s much smaller than the original but just as effective.

(In case you want to pin this for later, I made you a little graphic. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  2. Yum! I use PB2 for a similar smoothie. I also like to add dates if I feel like I need a little sugar.

  3. I didn’t realize Vitamix made a smaller size blender! This is a game-changer. My magic bullet is two smoothies away from biting the dust and I always thought the other one seemed far too big for what I would use it for!

      YES! Total game changer. I have so little counter space (and my old one was actually too tall for the space so I had to put it on top of the stove which was another issue). This is the best for small spaces.

    Have you tried powdered peanut butter? It is a great option since it has so few calories.

  10. The PB Split smoothie w almond milk is my FAV at juice generation <3 I usually get it with 1/2 the PB to reduce the total amount of calories since it's pretty high – nothing beats it! ๐Ÿ™‚
