Why i ♡ this smoothie:
Bananas → Using only ½ a banana, you’ll get more than 200 milligrams of potassium. Potassium is essential for nerve & muscle function (which is especially important for athletes).
Raspberries → Full of phytonutrients, raspberries provide our bodies with antioxidants that support our immune system and prevent disease (among other great things!)
Chocolate Protein Powder→ I have been using Genuine Health- Proteins+ Natural Chocolate Protein Powder. A single scoop has 25 grams of protein. Protein is necessary to build and repair muscles & tissues.
Peppermint Extract→ Peppermint is cooling & soothing which encourages stress relief.
