Research shows that consuming protein right after a workout helps accelerate muscle growth and repair damaged muscle tissue. This tasty smoothie bowl delivers the right amount of protein to do just that! Plus, it has the antioxidant power of blueberries, which makes them especially great for runners. This is one of my favorite recipes from Smoothies & Juices: Prevention Healing Kitchen.
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
11/2 scoops protein powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup vanilla granola
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 teaspoons hemp seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Combine frozen blueberries, almond milk, protein powder, almond butter, and vanilla extract in a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth. Divide between 2 bowls.
- Spoon 1/4 cup blueberries onto each smoothie bowl. Top each with 2 tablespoons granola, 1 tablespoon almonds, and 1 teaspoon hemp seeds. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and serve.
