Getting through the week's last quality workout before the weekend's long run can feel exhausting, exhilarating, give a sense of relief or even celebration. Today felt like a I'm going to need coffee in my smoothie kind of day, so I adapted from Sara Hall's recipe in the most recent Outside magazine, and here's what I did!
1/2 cup Gluten Free Oats
1/2 tablespoon Almond Butter
1/2 scoop Vega Sport Chocolate Protein Powder
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/2 cup Unsweetened Califia Almond Milk (the best, IMO)
1/2 cup Coffee
1 cup Ice
1/2 banana (optional) I ended up adding a 1/2 banana to sweeten it up, plus I like the texture it gives a smoothie, but you could certainly add a touch of honey or agave to sweeten it instead.
Easy! Add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
