5 Post-Yoga Smoothies With 5 Ingredients or Less
Why choose a smoothie for post-yoga?
One thing almost all yoga sessions have in common is that they end with Savasana. In Savasana – “also known as corpse pose — you lie down on your back and relax your body and mind so you may fully assimilate the benefits of your asana practice. Even a few minutes of Savasana is said to have powerful benefits.” While Savasana can have you feeling relaxed and calm while leaving the yoga studio, your body has likely just twisted and turned for 45-90 minutes, and as is ready for quick (yet simple) nutrients. A smoothie can be your best option because it is easy and quick to make, and will help quickly replenish nutrients and hydration.

Using just 3 ingredients, this smoothie will give a boost of both carbohydrates and protein. It contains 16g of protein and packs in the best chocolate-peanut butter flavor you can imagine from a smoothie.

If a green smoothie is what you’re craving, The Real Food Dietitians have you covered with this avocado and green-boosted option.
