Brighten your January with a splash of raspberry and coconut! This power-packed, post-workout smoothie will invigorate you!
Did you know that raspberries contain high levels of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals that guard against cancer, aging, and various diseases as well as inflammation and bloating? These vibrant colored berries come equipped with a hefty dose of many essential vitamins and nutrients that are required for optimal health such as vitamin C, magnesium, iron, potassium, and manganese. Not to mention, raspberries are a great source of vitamins A and E helping to keep skin, hair, and nails healthy. They are easy to sprinkle on dishes and use in recipes for a wide variety of meals.
Coconut is a great source of amino acids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. And the coconut is full of electrolytes, having levels similar to human plasma. The electrolyte levels are so similar, they’ve even been used in human transfusions during times of emergency when lives were on the line.
If you are looking for a guilt-free, post-workout shake filled with antioxidants and all the essential amino acids to refuel after a tough gym session, this shake is for you. It is power packed with Sunwarrior’s plant based protein with a delicious creamy sweet flavor to curb any sweet tooth and of course, nutrient dense.
