Soothing comfort is what I think of when I have this smoothie. For us T1Ders this smoothie is a little more on the sugary side of drinks. However, I love this smoothie for after a long workout where I need those extra carbs and sugars to get my numbers back up. The protein in it helps restore and rebuild all the those sore muscles that you have just finished working out. The potassium from the banana helps enhance your muscles’ strength, metabolism, electrolyte functions, and water balance. And the flax seeds give you fiber and tons of Omega-3s that you need.
I got this recipe is from Further Food, here is their recipe:
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
- 1 pitted date
- Optional: 1 scoop protein powder (I use Vega vanilla plant based protein powder)
- 1-2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Ready to enjoy!
Per serving: 18g sugar
