It's been a long time in the works, but I've been relying on this recovery smoothie for the last 3 months and it's taken my recovery and therefore my training to what I have felt are next levels. I hope it does the same for you too!


This smoothie is full of colorful foods and so much quality nutrition. It's very anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants. The heavy-hitting ingredients that really make this recovery smoothie an "ultimate" one include the ginger, tart cherry concentrate, beetroot powder, chia seeds (or hemp or flax seeds) and the turmeric. Of course the fruit and vegetables are crucial, but those can be swapped for other ingredients if necessary according to your desired smoothie flavor or even texture.


And because I don't want this post to be a huge blog post where you have to read a lot about me before getting to the recipe, let's just get you to the recipe!
