Summery strawberry and watermelon smoothie with yoghurt
This refreshing strawberry and watermelon smoothie is the perfect recovery drink after a hard workout.
It’s a great way to quickly replenish glycogen and protein to your muscles without eating a big meal.
The watermelon may also help with DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) which could be handy if you’ve pushed yourself a bit harder than normal.
I think smoothies are great post workout nutrition, because they’re a quick and easy way to replenish nutrients to your body.
You can also eat something with your smoothie, like a hard boiled egg or a handful of nuts for some extra protein. Or when a drink isn’t enough to completely satisfy your hunger.
