1.5 medjool dates (if you use regular dates I would use 2-3)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use SunWarrior)
2 tsp spirulina (I use Organic Burst)
1 TBS Cacao (not coco, it should be 100% cacao, no sugar)
1 tsp instant coffee or espresso
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1) Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

Post workout nutrition is important for muscle repair and recovery. This smoothie has everything you need protein, fats and carbs. I remember Lara telling me about the post workout smoothie she drinks. I tried it and let me tell you, it’s pretty damn delicious so I wanted to share it with you. You can definitely make it the night before and then drink it within 30 minutes of finishing your workout. Enjoy.
