    Smoothie Ingredients!

    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.

    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.

    20g Whey protein
    5g creatine
    3 strawberries

    Pineapple Juice
    Banana Puree
    Kiwi Puree
    Spirulina

    Broccoli
    Spinach
    Barley Grass
    Wheat Grass
    Parsley
    Ginger Root
    Blue Green Algae
    Odorless Garlic

    All of that in a 10-12 oz smoothie that takes 3 min to make!

    My go-to:

    Banana
    Frozen Blueberries and or fresh/frozen strawerries, rasberries
    almond/soy milk
    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.

    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.
