Shake up your training diet with this refreshingly good-for-you smoothie recipe!
Tropical Cycle Smoothie
Nutrition Notes: With half the fat of regular milk, and full of vitamins A, D, and B-12, almond milk is a great dairy alternative to give your smoothie that creamy consistency that’ll make you forget you’re drinking blended up salad greens! The tiny but mighty chia seeds are packed full of nutrients to keep your pedal to the medal during training. An excellent source of fibre, protein, and antioxidants – add chia almost anywhere to enhance the nutritious quality of your food. Pineapple, kiwi, and banana? We’ll be honest, the Hawaii-like flavour punch is the reason we keep drinking this smoothie, but the potassium, vitamin c, and inflammation reducing enzymes are an added bonus that keep our bodies feeling good after long rides.
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup fresh spinach
1/2 banana (preferably frozen)
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1/4 cup pineapple chunks
ice (optional as desired)
Add all ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Enjoy!
