7 Smoothies Recipes for Runners

7 Smoothies Recipes for Runners

When we need a supply of nutrients, either for breakfast or to recover from a workout, shakes and smoothies are an excellent choice to eat healthily while enjoying incredible flavors and textures.

Benefits of Smoothies

Since we are going to use fruits as the main ingredients, we can be sure that they will be filled with important vitamins, like the group B ones, or vitamin C, or beta carotenes, which are found in high concentrations in tropical and citrus fruits, like mangoes, pineapples, mandarins, oranges, berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes…and minerals like potassium or manganese. In this way, you can strengthen the immune system, support the formation of collagen, reduce the blood pressure, or fight against the inflammation, which are very important issues if we practice sports.

Benefits of Smoothies

Smoothies are recipes that can be made very quickly, which is ideal when we do not have a lot of time to cook.

What do we need to make Smoothies?

We will just need a nice blender (capable of crushing ice for some of the recipes), and the procedure will always be the same: put the ingredients and press the button, easy, quick, and very comfortable!

Here you have 7 delicious Smoothies recipes that are specially meant for runners:
