Post-Workout Smoothie … With a Very Secret Ingredient!

Earlier today we shared the five best foods for runners according to Kyle Pfaffenbach, a performance nutrition consultant for Brooks Running. And this smoothie? Well, it’s a super easy and delicious way to work that unique best-foods-for-runners ingredient in: radishes! Yes, radishes in your smoothie!
Kyle recommends sipping on this within a half hour of completing your long run or hard workout if possible. If you do so, it’ll help kick-start your muscle recovery and carb stores. Which pretty much means that it’ll help you to have a better workout next time you hit the gym or the trail. Bottoms up!

Post-Workout Run Happy Island Runners Reef-uel Smoothie Recipe

½ cup each frozen strawberries and blueberries
¼ cup radishes
¼ to ½ cup vanilla yogurt (Kyle likes Chobani)
½ cup of skim milk
½ to 1 cup water
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like Designer Whey)
Blend all ingredients together and add ice to reach desired consistency.
Note: Feel free to mix and match various fruits and veggies to find your favorite combo!
