This is one of my all-time favorite smoothie recipes and I keep frozen strawberries and pineapple stocked in the freezer and ready to go on the regular.
It packs one and a half servings of fruit, around 30 grams of natural protein, and two-thirds of your daily calcium. Talk about packed with goodness!
I freeze past-prime strawberries and pineapple (or perfect ones if I’m running low and just need to restock) and they make for great smoothies and prevent food waste! Just cut a pineapple into chunks and stick it in a Tupperware container and freeze strawberries right in the container they come in. When you go to use them, you can just scrape the leaves off when you use them for minimal food waste!
Smoothies are also pretty darn forgiving, so if you’re not a measuring person and more of a wing it person (which is totally me), it will probably still turn out great! If you are a measuring person though, no worries, all the details are below.
- Per serving, this recipe packs 60 g of carbs, 30 g of protein, and 5 g of fat, and 5 g of fiber
- Pre-workout: have at least 2 hours before your session to give you enough time to digest. Add extra carbs or have a pre-session carb snack if possible.
- Post-workout: use only a 1/2 cup of yogurt for a better 3:1 carb to protein ratio and have within 1-2 hours of your session.
- 3/4 cup frozen strawberries
- 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- Optional: sweetener to taste and 1 teaspoon of chia seeds and handful of shredded coconut
- Add everything except the chia seeds/coconut to the blender (I like to mix chia seeds in after blending so I can actually taste them)
- Blend away until smooth, stir in extras, and serve right away
