Q: WHAT ARE THE BEST RECOVERY SMOOTHIES?

ANSWER

There’s a recovery drink for everyone out there – whack a bit of what you like in the juicer or blender and, voila, post-run goodness! Stay vegetable and fruit heavy, and avoid adding sugar to your smoothie, and you can’t go wrong. 

Sweet stuff

Trail Running’s own Hannah James has a fabulous recipe for those who, like her, are dairy or milk free “Soak chia seeds overnight to get them to the jelly stage and add either cacao, coffee and ice, or banana and spinach, then blitz everything to an amazing creamy consistency.”

Green goodness

Jayson also likes a bit of superfood chia: “Make a nice green drink by juicing broccoli, cucumber, apples, kiwi fruit, a lime and a scoop of chia seeds.”

Warm up

Debbie prefers savoury over sweet “I like a soup that’s packed with veggies and beans or lentils – you can’t beat a good tomato, borlotti bean and kale soup”.
