A Gold-Winning Go-To Smoothie Recipe

Hey AKT Olympians,

REFUELING your body, post-workout, is right up there with RESTING. A snack combining 10 to 15 grams of protein and 20 to 30 grams of carbohydrates within 30 minutes of your workout can help to refuel your body, promote muscle recovery, amp up your energy, and build a leaner physique.

We love fruit smoothies. They’re easy to make, and are the perfect snack. While some smoothie recipes are loaded with calories, this Super Food Smoothie recipe, recommended by AKT’s Nutritive Specialist, Safia Morsly-Fikai, is packed with protein to give you an energy boost pre-workout or to refuel your muscles when your done.
