Refueling after a hard workout is incredibly important—you want to supply your body with the nutrients it needs to repair and rebuild muscle. Eating or drinking the right things after a workout can really help enhance and accelerate your recovery. I occasionally have a hard time eating right after a workout, which is why I turn to smoothies so often to help me refuel. Today I’m sharing a recipe for a yummy Tropical Fruit Recovery Smoothie made with Isopure Aminos, full of great ingredients to help stimulate recovery after intense exercise.

A few weeks ago I wrote about Isopure Aminos, a supplement that you can take along with your usual protein powder to really help jump start your recovery from workouts #behindthemuscle. I’ve been using Isopure Aminos for about a month now after my barre workouts and my hard runs, and I do think I’ve felt a difference. I’m less sore and I think I’ve been getting stronger than I would have otherwise without my regular Isopure smoothies. I’ve tried mixing the Alpine Punch flavor with chocolate protein powder, which is pretty tasty, but after experimenting, I found that my favorite combination involves mixing it with tropical fruits for an island-inspired smoothie.
This recovery smoothie combines banana, mangoes (an awesome superfood!), and a little orange, along with the tropical punch flavor of the Isopure Aminos. I threw some orange juice in mine to get in a little extra Vitamin C, an antioxidant, but if you’re trying to avoid adding extra sugar to your diet, you could mix yours with water, maybe adding in a little stevia for sweetness if you feel like your smoothie needs it.

- 1 scoop fruit-flavored or plain protein powder
