I don’t know about the rest of the country, but it has been down right beautiful in the Carolinas the past few days {part of the reason why I moved back 😉 }.  Had some time today to squeeze in a 4-miler before the sun goes down, and I wanted to share my post workout recovery drink with you guys!

The Ingredients::

::1 cup of coconut water
::1 cup/handful of kale
::2-3 spinach cubes {spinach, blended up and formed into ice cubes…I’ll discuss later} OR 1 handful of organic spinach leaves
::1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
::1 Tbsp Flax Seeds
::1/2 avocado
::1 cup pineapple {can be frozen}

Blend the ingredients above and viola!

I also hand a handful of almonds for a protein kick while I cleaned the kitchen. {it neeeeeds it}

Disclaimer::

This drink tastes very GREEN.  I know some people still can’t quite get over the “veggies in liquid form”taste//texture…which I can understand, it takes some getting used to, it did for me as well.  One way to still get all the benefits of this bev is to add some additional fruit to overpower the kaley-ness of it all, like an apple or a ripe banana.  Or even a few drops of agave nectar/raw honey.  Just a thought.  If you’re wanting to be able to handle the taste of a GREEN drink, but you can’t quite get past the taste, start by adding different fruits and then week by week remove one piece of fruit until there are zero fruits {not sure if this is proper grammar here…probably not}.  But you get the idea, it’s like weaning yourself off of a fruit smoothie.  Works like a charm.

Tonight Jimmy and I have plans to see American Sniper and I absolutely cannot wait.  I’ve heard nothing but good things!

See y’all tomorrow!

What do you guys like to recover with?  Have you seen American Sniper yet?
