“Summer Smoothie Marathon”: #2) Muscle Builder Smoothie

We continue our “Summer Smoothie Marathon” with this healthy & delicious “Muscle Builder Smoothie”! We designed this smoothie specifically for those doing strength training; it’s a really great mix of ingredients to aid in recovery, while also helping to build muscle. This 279 calorie smoothie is full of  fiber, lots of protein, calcium, iron, and Vitamins A & C, and for MAXIMUM results, make sure to consume within 2 hours of working out! (We also topped ours with yummy hemp seeds, which is natures highest source of essential botanical fatty acids, and also contains ALL 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAA’s) our bodies cannot produce; add these if you can!) Give this smoothie a try, and leave a rating & comment below; we know you’ll enjoy it. Happy Cooking! – Tasty25 Staff
