This antioxidant-rich smoothie, packed with filling fiber and protein, makes a great combination for an energizing grab ‘n go breakfast or post-workout recovery meal. The naturally-occuring quick-absorbing sugar from the peach aids in muscle recovery after tough workouts (tough meaning 45-60 minutes of intense exercise). Make it into a post-workout recovery snack by cutting all ingredients in half.
