[RECIPE] Peanut Butter and Jelly Post-Workout Smoothie

One of my favorite ways to recover after a workout or competition is peanut butter and jelly smoothie. It is the perfect post-workout smoothie.   With 21 grams of carbohydrates and 31 grams of protein, this meets sports nutrition recommendations for a recovery meal.  The spinach adds a great source of additional vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to support healing.   Ashwagandha is an effective adaptogen which means that it helps the body adapt to physical and mental stress. 

For another great post-recovery recipe, check out this Gogi Berry Green Smoothie.     I’ve also included free instant access to my e-book, 20 Adaptogenic Recipes to Enhance Healing and Recovery below.  All of the recipes included in this free ebook would be great for post-workout recovery.

Last summer while training for the beach volleyball season, our group needed an extra girl to run some drills with. Our coach (Paul) showed up with this lovely Wisconsinite to play with us and arranged for me to chat with her afterwards about her fascinating life as a professional athlete. Turns out that not only is she a great beach volleyball player, but she is a professional heptathlete too. Even though I had participated in track and field in high school and have dabbled in the world of triathlons, I had to google what exactly a heptathlon was. This event consists of the following 7 events:

  • 100m hurdles
  • High jump
  • Shot put
  • 200m sprint
  • Long jump
  • Javelin
  • 800m run

I quickly asked this incredibly down-to-earth pro athlete, Lindsay Schwartz, to answer a bunch of questions that would reveal information to my readers about her training, mindset, nutrition and recovery. I’ll let her tell you more about what contributes to her success in her sport and in her life. Take it away Lindsay!
