Post-Run Smoothie


I started making this smoothie after I first read Eat and Run by Ultramarathoner Scott Jurek.  As I love kale and other greens so much I started including them, along with my spirulina, in this anti-inflammatory drink.  Its light, sweet taste makes it a treat after a run and because it makes so much I usually have 2-3 servings that I can drink throughout the day as well.  I am always looking for new smoothie ideas to help recover from my run faster and this is definitely one of my favourites.

Post-Run Smoothie Recipe
2 cups water
1 cup kale
1 banana
½ cup strawberries
½ cup mango
½ cup pinapple
½ cup frozen shelled edamame
¼ cup dried coconut flakes
2 tbsp EFA’s (omega 3’s)
1 tbsp protein powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground tuneric
1 1-inch piece peeled ginger

I don’t think its news to anyone when we hear that we should be eating our leafy greens, but why do most of us find it so hard to include them in our daily diet?  Beyond the basic salad we sometimes are stumped with how to include them with our meals.  Besides tossing up a salad, I almost always throw leafy greens into soups, sauces, and other main dishes.  

I’m sure you’ve heard that leafy greens are nutritional powerhouses.  Kale is one of my favourites.  Including it in our morning smoothie is very simple.  It is just one additional opportunity to give my active family the important nutrients needed to stay healthy.

My favourite is to combine kale with fresh oranges (or pineapple) in the blender.  I then blend in my extra’s which almost always includes a banana to give it the creamy texture.  Depending on your preference, in addition to your fruits/veggies you can add in your EFA oil, ground flax, protein powder, etc. to get the desired blend that you are looking for.  Yum, so delish!

If you don’t think a green smoothie sounds very appetizing, trust me and give it a try as you may be pleasantly surprised.  I’ve outlined a few of my favourite simple breakfast smoothie recipes below.  Kale is listed as the leafy green as it’s my personal preference, but others work just as well.  Remember to select organic produce whenever possible (especially the kale)!  Use more water if needed to get your desired consistency.
