You just finished a 3-set match in the sweltering heat, and all you can think about as you walk off the court is chugging a huge glass of ice-cold water. I totally get that, but your body needs more than just water to recover.
So, how ’bout a smoothie?
This Strawberry Watermelon Recovery Smoothie tastes so delicious, so naturally sweet, you’ll crave it after every match or workout. It’s made with fresh, juicy watermelon that offers nearly 550g of potassium to help with muscle soreness; strawberries that have carbs to restore energy; hydrating cucumber; electrolyte-packed coconut water; and protein powder to heal those hard-worked muscles.
It’s light and refreshing, and has only 145 calories, making it the perfect post-match snack. In minutes, you’ll have the protein (15 grams!), carbs, and hydration you need after a long hot match, leaving you feeling cool, refreshed, and refueled.
