Chocolate and Banana Workout Smoothie

Dairy Free Chocolate & Banana Workout Smoothie

A pre-or-post workout smoothie is the quickest and easiest way to pack in essential nutrients that your body needs before and after a workout. A liquid snack before hitting the gym can provide the body the fuel it needs to gain muscle and burn fat, and won’t be too heavy on your stomach.

After a workout, a protein drink can help build stronger muscles and speed up muscle recovery time. Protein can also help to rebuild the body throughout the day.

Whey Protein is probably the most popular form of protein powder, however it contains dairy, and not everyone can stomach dairy.  Luckily, there are plenty of Vegan and dairy free options on the market now. We recommend trying protein substitutes like hemp, rice, or pea, and milk substitutes like coconut, rice, oats or almond.

Our Dairy Free Chocolate & Banana Workout Smoothie is made using Pulsin Rice Protein which is raw and contains 8g of Protein per serving. Drink this 60-90 minutes before or after a workout for a tasty, nutritious and energising boost.
