Filled with wholesome Postassium-rich fruits and vegetables, there’s no need to go through a body toning, muscle fatiguing barre workout without a nutrient rich, and delicious smoothie like this. Potassium and Sodium are some electrolytes your body needs for contracting muscles, exchanging and flushing fluids. Sodium isn’t typically difficult to come by, and if over-consumed, tends to cause us to retain fluids, increasing inflammatory reaction. Meanwhile too many in our population are Potassium deficient. What’s more, it’s better absorbed through food.
So you’ve tapped into some amazing deep-muscle activating moves, but you need them relaxed and hydrated too. So get your detox on and recover from the sore after-burn by not only stretching, and hydrating with water but also by indulging in nature’s delicious electrolytes!
Ingredients could be endless, but I like to keep ingredients quick and simple. You know, the type I can count on 5 fingers – so here goes:
GREEN WITH PASSION SMOOTHIE
Here’s what you need for 1-2 servings:
- A handful of Kale
- A handful of Spinach
- Half of a banana
- .5 cup of fresh or frozen (no sugar added) pineapples
- 6 oz of Coconut water
- 1 cup of Ice*
- Optional: 1 Scoop Protein Powder Supplement (protein enhancement)
- Optional: 1 Scoop Green Powder Supplement (nutrition enhancement)
Blend all until smooth, add a few ounces of water if needed
*If you get the fruit frozen, then you may skip the ice
P.S. If it’s been too long or you haven’t had a chance to try our Passion Barre classes yet, we’d love to host you.
