Ingredients

300ml Greek yogurt
100g strawberries
1 tbsp. honey
Milk to top up

It is important to “Refuel, Repair & Rehydrate”   the body with food  to aid recovery after a training session (ideally within 60 minutes). 

Many people lose their appetite after high intensity exercise and struggle to eat solids so a liquid drink such as a smoothie is a good way to recover.  

A combination of milk and Greek yogurt provides protein to support muscles; the berries and honey supply quick acting carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores and the fluid helps to rehydrate the body after sweating.

Benefits: Improve recovery from gym session.

Directions

Simply blend all of the ingredients together.
