My post ride shake
November 4th, 2010 by Ashleigh Moolman Pasio
1. Cranberry juice
2. Low fat Bulgarian yoghurt
Good source of probiotics, protein and calcium to support healthy bones
3. Seed mix
Rich in protein, good source of fibre, rich in minerals and essential fatty acids which are important for recovery and lowering inflammatory compounds
4. Frozen blueberries and strawberries
Low in fat, carbs, and calories, but high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, these yummy nuggets of flavor not only contribute to overall health, but may even help prevent cancer and heart disease, as well as slowing the aging process.
5. Whey protein powder (natural or vanilla)
High quality source of essential amino acids necessary for optimum recovery after a long, hard ride.
Good source of starch and fruit sugars to reload depleted glycogen stores. Banana’s are also rich in potassium to restore electrolyte balance and they also assist the absorption of protein.
Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.
Pour into a glass and enjoy! YUMMY!
