This is my recovery drink after a workout - a super yummy healthy banana smoothie ! I don't like drinking the heavy protein shakes or Gatorade. I am all for natural, simple nutrition so I make my own recovery drinks !
To make one big glass of smoothie , you'll need :

1 Medium Banana Frozen
1/2 Cup Milk (1% or skim)
1 tsp Flax Seed Powder
2 Walnuts

Whip it up in a blender and there you have your delicious simple smoothie !

I peel the banana , slice them and freeze a bunch of ripe ones in a Ziploc bag. Roughly I cut each banana into ten pieces so I just pull out ten chunks for one smoothie. Alternatively you can use a regular banana and ice. The flax seed powder and walnuts make the smoothie creamy delicious ! For added creamy texture you can also use vanilla yogurt.

The best part - all this deliciousness is without any added extra sugars ! Any sweetness is from the banana !

Another dessert recipe i try to tell everyone about: ripe bananas+dates+a lil' honey+ a lil' milk+any other sweet fruit of your choice. Blend, freeze, stir, freeze, stir and freeze. Perfect sorbet, very creamy and so, so good, especially when you top it with toasted nuts!

I love this smoothie idea! And all other smoothies--my favorite super fast, super easy, super delicious, super healthy one:

1/2 cup Vanilla Soymilk
1/2 cup Frozen Blueberries

Blend--you can't even taste the soy flavor, but it adds a sweetness so you dont need sugar and youre getting tons of antioxidants.
