Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

Yes, please!
This morning was a hot one, and after my workout I needed something to cool down with. I made this recovery shake and decided to have some eggs on the side for a little extra fuel for my busy morning.
In the blender:
  • 1 1/2 C. Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/2 tsp. Chia Seeds
  • 1 banana
  • 4 Strawberries
  • 1 scoop Elite Egg Protein
  • 5-6 ice cubes
It was good recovery after spending my morning here:
After a mile warm-up run, It was time to take on the BAT.

I felt up to a challenge today and used heavier weights and even ended up putting a #25 plate on my back for the planks! Phew! My arms are DONE!
I made it home just as Bee woke up. I love cuddling her in the mornings, she is calm and snuggly. As soon as she gets going she never stops.. neither of them do really… Not sure where they get that one. Winking smile
I think we will spend a little more time at the park later, they had too much fun yesterday and can’t wait to go down the “weee” (slide) again.

Catch ya’ later!

  1. mmm smoothies are awesome right now! Almond milk makes them! And banana always adds just the right amount of sweet. Hope you're having a great day

  2. That workout sounds great!!
    I need to get back into more weight lifting, cutting down on that high intensity!
    I love my smoothies in the afternoon, especially once it gets super hot out.
