Summer Sessions – Post-Workout Smoothie

Summer Sessions are back with a post-workout treat.

Smoothies are the perfect post-workout snack because they’re quick to make, refreshing and can be made ahead to throw in your bag for when you leave the gym.

Your workout is not complete until you eat and smoothies are easy to digest and are a simple way to get all the nutrients you need, protein to repair your muscles; carbs to restore your glycogen stores and antioxidants (found in maca and bananas) to reduce inflammation and cell damage.

So thank us now for this beauty of a smoothie and how great you feel when you taste it!

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie


  • 1-2 cups milk (use dairy alternative if vegan)
  • 1 banana (frozen)
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
  • ½ cup oats


  1. Add all of your ingredients into a blender and blitz until you have the consistency you desire
  2. Pour into a glass and enjoy

Drink within 30-60 minutes after exercise to restore energy levels and get the most gains.

Top tips for a tasty smoothie!

  • Use frozen bananas for a creamy, “milkshake” texture
  • Fill an ice cube tray with your choice of milk then pop a few milk cubes into your smoothie, your drink will remain cool throughout your workout without being watered down which happens when you use water
  • If you need that extra boost add a shot of coffee to your smoothie
  • Use gluten free oats if needed

Let us know how it goes when you try this one out and your favourite post-workout smoothie flavours!
