How tired are you after a run? Honestly, after a run, I’m usually too exhausted to eat and just want to lay down. Chewing is too much effort haha. Someone just put food in my mouth please. This is why I’m been loving this green mango recovery smoothie. It’s quick to put together before a run and then I toss in the fridge before I head out for my run.

So what’s in this? Let’s break this green mango recovery smoothie down!

  • Medjool Dates

I opted for Medjool Dates in this smoothie over bananas because dates have a higher fibre content, more iron, has practically twice the potassium (low potassium is one of the causes of leg cramps – source), and is a natural sweetener for the smoothie.

  • Hemp Hearts

According to Dr. Mike Roussell, “these little seeds give you the complete nutritional power of hemp with their blend of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, high fiber content, and quality amino acid profile. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and potentially osteoporosis, and that is generally low in women. Three tablespoons of hulled hemp seeds gives you 10 grams (g) of protein, 14g fat (mostly coming from omega-3 and omega-6 fats), and 2g fiber.”

  • Spinach

Spinach is high in zinc, protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. (Source)

  • Silk Vanilla Almond Milk

Silk has less fat and lower calories than skim milk, zero cholesterol, and I honestly was craving something vanilla-y.

  • Mango

1 cup of mangos come out to 100% of my daily Vitamin C and 12% of my daily fibre. Plus it’s delicious 😉

Pretty snazzy list of ingredients right? Below is how I make my green mango recovery smoothie but note that you might want to tweak the ingredients amounts based on your own preference. For this green mango recovery smoothie, you’ll need a blender and it makes two servings.

  1. I have been drinking a LOT of green smoothies! The warmer weather just has me craving cooler recovery meals and they’re so easy to put together. Banana and mangoes are my favorite add ins. They make a green smoothie hearty and creamy.

  2. Mmmm i definitely will have to keep this smoothie recipe in mind as it starts to get warmer outside! I love drinking post workout smoothies after a hot, sweaty run outside!
