Surely if you are a person dedicated to physical activity, you will know that there are thousands and thousands of smoothie recipes to provide that extra energy you need, without this altering your physique. However, it is worth adding another drink to your list so that you can prepare it as soon as possible and, with it, feel better.
How do you prepare
In a container pour between 250 to 500 ml of milk or water. Add a serving of protein, 1 ripe banana, a handful of raspberries or strawberries/strawberries, a pinch of ground cinnamon, a handful of spinach, a handful of walnuts, 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of rolled oats until homogenize. Serve and drink before training.
This drink brings vitality in your training. This is thanks to the antioxidants that raspberries contain. In addition, the ketones in this fruit are believed to work as a natural weight reducer, although scientific evidence to support this is lacking. Similarly, cinnamon adds a touch of flavor and helps to level blood sugar.
As for spinach, they are a vegetable that cannot be absent in the athlete’s diet, since it is a source of minerals such as potassium, sodium and magnesium, which are required to ensure the electrolyte balance of the body, to have a correct muscle contraction and prevent cramps. The walnut provides omega 3 and polyunsaturated fats that protect the arteries against cholesterol. It also has weight-loss effects similar to that of a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet.
Now, if the shake is going to be ingested before training, the ideal would be that you leave the oats and omit the peanut butter and nuts since these take time to digest and can sometimes cause problems during training. If you drink the drink right after training, make sure it contains the fruit, the vegetable and the protein so that you can be at full capacity during exercise. So it only remains to enjoy it to the fullest.
