Energy Smoothie Recipes

The three energy smoothie recipes below are rich in complex carbohydrates, fiber and protein to give you maximum energy so you can perform at your best. Protein gives you endurance energy by slowing down the digesting process which helps balance blood sugar levels. Protein is also essential for repairing body tissues after exercising. Carbohydrate is the body’s main source of fuel. Try to stay away from simple carbohydrate because it breaks down quickly and can cause spike in blood sugar levels. Another reason why you should stay away from simple carbohydrate is because it is great at causing weight gain.

Quick tips: for a thinner smoothie use non-frozen fruits, for a thicker smoothie use more frozen fruits. Organic ingredients are preferred.
