Post Workout Smoothie, Vegan Style!

Here is my typical post run/bike smoothie!

1 cup Almond Milk
1 Banana
1Tsp Udo's Oil
1/2 cup frozen fruit
1 tsp Chia seeds
1 tsp Maca powder
1 tsp Salba
2 TBSP Hemp Protein Powder

Put all ingredients in blender and blend to desired consistency.

A few options:  Replace banana with a ripe avocado. You can also use a frozen banana. When my bananas start to get real funky, I peel them and individually wrap them and put them in the freezer.

Instead of hemp powder, I switch up with a scoop of Vega Energizing Smoothie Powder. Check out all their fine products at

I vary the frozen fruit at times with fresh fruit. Just add some ice to the mix to get the texture you want.

I also throw in some coconut flakes or a tsp of coconut oil on occasion.

For some added iron, throw in some ground raw pumpkin seed too!



  1. Vega powders are pretty good, make sure to try their chocolate flavored one.

  2. Very nice and thanks for the link. We don't get a great variety here in South Africa. Have a good weekend!
