Creamy Chocolate Post-Workout Smoothie

As a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach, I know a thing or two about healthy nutrition habits, nutrient timing, and eating for performance.

I have been trying out some new recipes and came across this delicious smoothie that works as a great post workout snack. The avocado makes this smoothie nice and creamy while also providing a dose of healthy fats for hormone production. Coconut water brings great flavour and a dose of electrolytes. The anti-oxidants in cacao and raw honey help repair damaged cells and add simple sugars for nutrient transport respectively. The addition of protein serves up amino acids for building and repairing muscle tissue. All in all, this drink is ideal post workout and happens to taste damn good. Give it a shot and let me know what you think.

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground hempseeeds
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)

Throw all ingredients in a blender until completely smooth and enjoy immediately.
