"This is an excellent post-workout recovery drink. Beets contain nitrate, which increases blood flow to muscles and acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which hold on to water, prolonging hydration and retention of electrolytes, and slowly release carbs for better endurance. Ginger can help relieve muscle soreness and reduce oxidative stress."

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup skim milk

  • 1 scoop protein powder

  • 1 carrot

  • 1 beet or ¼ cup pickled beets

  • 1 small frozen banana
