I love protein smoothies after working out. I had recently frozen some peaches and knew they would be a perfect ingredient for a fruity smoothie. Instead of adding my usual protein powder, I thought about switching it up and adding hemp seeds, which are very high in protein. The combination was perfect and so delicious! I really enjoyed this after my workout!
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 frozen peach
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds*
- 1 cup almond milk (I used Almond Coconut flavor)
- Thaw fruit so that it will easily blend in a blender (unless using a high speed blender).
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy!
*If you don’t have hemp seeds you can omit this ingredient and just make a peach smoothie. Or maybe try adding some nuts to add some protein to this smoothie.
Tip: To have fruit thawed and ready to go right after a workout, I actually put the frozen banana in the fridge (they thaw really fast and I wanted it thawed and cold, but not brown and warm) and put the frozen peach on the counter to thaw before I went to work out. When I got home the fruit was at a perfect state to be blended into my smoothie.
This was super quick to make after working out so that I was able to get all that nutrition right when my body needed it most!
