Just started getting into more serious riding and I want to try the smoothie thing. What do you guys add that tastes real good and seems to help? Ive never made a smoothie in my life.
Great thread! I need to use my Ninja blender more.

rather be riding
I don't drink smoothies for riding fuel b/c I always get hungry really fast after I have one. (rice milk, banana, blueberries, almond butter). So I'm curious what others put it the smoothies to make them work.
4 ice cubes
20g Whey protein
4 ounces of "juice" (see below)
and for juice I use Naked Truth's "green machine" "superfood" juice product, which includes:
Blue Green Algae
All of that in a 10-12 oz smoothie that takes 3 min to make!
'95 M2 StumpJumper FS
'11 Cannondale RZ 120-two
I will have to try that! Anyone else have good smoothie recipes? I want to try a bunch,
I like stumps recipe, here's my standard
Silk Coconut milk
Scoop of designer whey strawberry or muscle milk chocolate protein powder
Handful frozen fruit
5 grams optimum nutrition glutamine powder
1tbsp of flavorless fiber powder
1tbsp ground flaxseed
Only drink these post ride
1.5 cups cranberry juice
1 cup frozen berry mix
6 tbsp plain yogurt
2 tbsp flaxseed oil
1 scoop whey protein powder
1 cup milk
6 ice cubes
add a little water if it too thick
It works out to approx 720 Calories
see soothieweb dot com for more ideas you can put in any think you like experiment.
Frozen Blueberries and or fresh/frozen strawerries, rasberries
some almonds and or pecans, walnuts
big handful of spinach (yes spinach, you don't even taste it)
And when I have it, I love to add vega MRP powder/ or their smoothie powders. I'm not vegetarian etc but its just great quality stuff and tastes good.
today i slapped one together, its different but its what i had. As a bonus my three year old girl loved it!
Green tomato, because i hate sweet drinks and have a garden full of them.
Roots. I hate roots.
I always put the ingredients in the blender in this order...not sure why, it just feels right. This is my go-to recipe.
- 3 ice cubes
- 1 scoop of whey protein powder (25 g)
- 1 large banana
- 4-7 strawberries, depending on size
- handful of blueberries
- Chobani raspberry greek yogurt
- Vitamin B tablet
- a capsule or two of EGCG
- a capsule of L-tyrosine
- been experimenting with quercetin (doesn't seem to do anything)
- fill the rest of the blender up with almond milk (my blender holds 40 oz I believe)
- a spoonful of local raw honey
Once in a great while, I'll throw in a spoonful or two of organic peanut butter. I have ground up some pumpkin seed flax granola cereal in a coffee grinder and added that for a few extra calories.
In any amt.
Frozen blue/blackberries or mixed berries
Rose's Lime Juice
Tequila.....Happy Cinco De Mayo!
