fig raspberry post workout smoothie recipe

Hello friends,

Do you remember Michelle’s love of pirates post? you may have seen a smoothie that was pictured in that post.

Well today I am going to share that recipe because it was quite tasty and satisfying.

Michelle and I enjoyed this smoothie after our workout earlier this week. In this smoothie we used swiss chard as our green, if you do not have swiss chard please feel free to use any green of your choice. I promise you do not taste the swiss chard in there!

Fig raspberry hemp seed smoothie

Why we use swiss chard in smoothie? Well we always try to get one dark leafy green or herb to help alkaline the body after an intense workout and a little bit of protein.

    Mmm, this smoothie looks wonderful! I adore using frozen figs in smoothies–I’ve found that they work especially well with the addition of carob powder. This recipe is also perfect because I just ran out of frozen bananas which are usually a must in my smoothies. Thanks for sharing!

    Yum sounds like an amazing way to recover from a great workout! I actually do like swiss chard but don’t often buy it – I really like steaming it and topping it with a bit of Braggs! Think I’ll have to add it to my next grocery list!

    Do you like drinking shakes or smoothies after your workouts? – I like too but I don’t often enough. This sounds great and I’m looking forward to trying it.

    Raspberries: yay or nay? YAY

    Swiss chard: yay or nay? Meh? haha sometimes I like it and sometimes I don’t.
