If you exercise hard then you need to refuel properly to get the most out of your workout. This supercharged antioxidant smoothie is a great source of protein, electrolytes and easy to digest carbohydrate.
I love this shake anytime of the day – its great as an energising drink to kick start your morning especially when time is short. The frozen banana provides a silky texture, and coconut water will quickly hydrate and refresh your body. Make use of bags of frozen berries to make this a speedy smoothie.
