I’ve been getting really into my HIIT lately; just 15 minutes of exercise in the morning and you’re winning all day, how good is that?! What really helps us to progress our fitness, alongside dedication and motivation, is diet. It’s so important to fuel and refuel our bodies with the good stuff that’s going to aid recovery and our increasing strength.

This shake is so delicious and it hits you up with a great does of protein. It’s low in fat because this food group slows down the absorption of protein and after a workout we want to get it to our muscles as quickly as possible. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

Ingredients:

1 Banana
1 large handful Blueberries
1c Spinach
2 Egg Whites
2 tbsp Raw Cacao
3 tbsps Quinoa Flakes
3 tbsps Protein Powder (I use pea protein)
Almond Milk (the quantity depends on personal preference. I recommend adding in a good slosh, blend, then decide whether you want some more. Some people like their smoothie thin like a drink and others like it thick enough to eat with a spoon – you decide).

Add all the ingredients to your blender and whizz it up.
