Recipe Developer: Ciarra, @peanubutterpluschocolate

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Total Time: 5 Minutes

Yield: 2 Smoothies

Why we love it: This smoothie is the perfect post-workout recovery drink to nourish your body with superfoods and re-build your muscles with protein. Choose organic fruits and vegetables to steer clear from pesticides.

Alternatives: Want to add more nutritious powders and seeds to your smoothie? You can’t go wrong with adding in the following foods: Wheatgrass powder, spirulina, maca powder, super green immunity mix, hemp seeds, or flax seeds.

Health Benefits: Iron is a mineral that vegan’s normally lacked because it’s found in red meat. However, spinach contains 2.7 mg per 100 grams. Spinach is also a good source of vitamins A, C, and K--these essential vitamins help to boost your immune system. For everything, you need to know about a healthy immune system, click here.
