Post Workout Strawberry Banana Smoothie

With every one's New Year's Resolutions in full swing I thought I would share my favorite smoothie recipe.  Well, it's my favorite for this week.  A woman has a right to change her mind, you know.  This smoothie is great for breakfast or as a post workout shake.  It's easy to digest, high in protein, full of electrolytes, and tastes great. 

If your New Year's Resolution is to eat better, exercise more, or just get healthier in general - Good on you!  Stick to it.  Don't be part of the 78% of people who fail at living out their resolutions.

Strawberry Banana Post-Workout Smoothie

1 cup coconut water
1/3-1/2 chunk of banana
1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1 scoop unflavoured or vanilla whey protein powder (or rice protein if you prefer to be vegan/vegetarian)
1 cup frozen strawberries

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Play with the amount of coconut water until you settle on a consistency that you like.
