While writing this book, inevitably we have found that smoothies can be the answer to almost every meal situation and time of the day. However, if we were to choose one occasion when smoothies are optimal, it would have to be after physical exercise. When you are too tired to cook a meal, there is no quicker way to refill your body with energy. We have created three different post-workout smoothies here with ingredients that not only optimize the recovery after various types of physical exercise, but also taste incredible.
