Frozen Mixed Berry Smoothie

FROZEN MIXED BERRY SMOOTHIE

I get asked a lot if I eat something right away in the morning, before working out…which I do.  I am up at least 60-75 minutes before the first class, and I feel I work better by getting some fuel in me right away.  Eating right away in the morning might not be for you and finding what works might take some trial and error.  Most of you would probably prefer this post workout, midday snack or bedtime snack.

If nothing else, at minimum you should be drinking a big glass of water to start the day…with .5-1 servings of ASCENT Whey protein, to get your body some amino acids.

Now, here is the smoothie (recipe below) I make everyday before my workout, but for many it might be better as a post workout drink…or a snack during the day to help curb that sweet tooth!   🙂


INGREDIENTS;  (HERE is the blender I like to use)

  1. (1) cup frozen mixed berries

  2. 1/4 cup of frozen avocados

  3. add almond/coconut milk (or regular milk) to top of berries (water works too, just kinda bland)

  4. add (1) scoop ASCENT Vanilla protein…Chocolate or Chocolate Peanut Butter are great too!

  5. add (2) tablespoons PB2

  6. add a fist-full of baby spinach

  7. add more almond milk to just below max fill line

  8. blend and enjoy!!

  9. other quick options to throw in…Chia seeds, hemp seeds, MCT oil, pixie dust, etc…
