Post Workout Recovery Smoothie; Weight Management; and Anti-Diabetes
Nutritionist Ms. Nadine Tengco demonstrated to us (Crossfit challenge participants) how to make a smoothie. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take pictures.
1 cup papaya cubed
1 large banana
1 tablespoon Psyllium fiber
1 tablespoon no-sugar crunchy peanut butter
2 cup low-fat or almond milk
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 tablespoon mint leaves
10 grams coco sugar or 2 sachets Stevia (optional only: if banana or papaya is not sweet)
Blend all ingredients together
**This smoothie should be taken within 1 hour after workout to aid in muscle repair, recovery and refuelling. It contains potassium, calcium, iron, potent antioxidants (phenolic and flavonoid compounds) and the anti-inflammatory enzyme papain, all designed to assist the body in healing, repairing and building lean muscle and increasing metabolism.
