Get your glow back before Summer Hits. Time to give that body of yours something good tasting and good for you.
We can’t say enough about greens over here. And for the uninitiated, hiding some of those greens behind a kiwi and a banana may be the magic ticket.
Also, “stoned avocado” just means you take the giant seed in the middle out before you put it in the blender. The folks in the UK call them “stones.” Yes, I also think stoned avocados are funny too.
Green Recovery Smoothie
Celery and banana are rich in the electrolytes Sodium and Potassium (which you loose when you sweat). Together with the proteins in the hemp powder and nut butter, they are the perfect ingredients in a recovery drink. Keep hydrated and drink this Green Recovery Smoothie after a workout for best result.

1/2 avocado, stoned
