Smoothie Recipes For Runners
This series of smoothie recipes is perfect for all runners. Whether you’re looking for a quick nutritious breakfast or a powerful post?training session shake, you’ll find the recipe you’re looking for.
As with any smoothie, many additives can be added for a variety of reasons. You can add any powdered product and it won’t affect taste, such as protein powder, wheat germ, oatmeal, 100% bran cereal, soy powder, rice powder, flaxseed oil, bee pollen, etc. All of these products are available in health food stores. You can throw just about anything in a smoothie to enhance its flavour such as honey, tofu, jams, any combination of fruits or juices, etc., but keep in mind it will effect the nutritional values listed below each one.
