Post-Run Recovery Smoothie

There are so many amazing women we know that are training for marathons, half-marathons, iron-man, two-oceans, comrades and so many more and we dedicate this smoothie to all of you.


The combination of maca, coconut water, chia seeds and almond butter offers your body a full nutritional recovery post-training.

Maca is a medicinal root and considered one of the world’s superfoods.  It is a powerful energy, mood and stamina booster and aids in balancing of hormone levels in the body.  Chia seeds are high in omega’s and help your body maintain a hydrated state for hours and is a great source of protein and the coconut water helps to replace electrolytes.
