I usually love a good post workout smoothie. But, I’ve been really enjoying this electrolyte drink as of late!
Why I’m loving this electrolyte drink
Strawberry milkshake vibes
It’s kind of in between a drink and a smoothie, but it most definitely has strawberry milkshake vibes. It’s kind of in a category on it’s own – a foamy yet super refreshing, and hydrating drink!
Made with real whole foods
Many electrolyte energy, post work-out drinks include artificial flavours and additives.
This drink is made with four simple good-for-you ingredients:
Coconut water is abundant in natural electrolytes: potassium, sodium, and manganese. So it’s a great natural way to rehydrate!
Make sure the coconut water you’re using is pure and simply coconut water with no other ingredients.
You could use fresh strawberries, but frozen obviously creates a cold drink and adds to the foamy/creaminess!
Lemon juice also promotes hydration and is an excellent source of vitamin C, AND it aids digestion, woot woot! Plus I add it in because I like the tang!
Collagen protein is an excellent addition to any smoothie/drink, especially if you’re having it post workout. It may help speed recovery of muscles and did you know it’s also excellent for the health of skin, hair, and nails?
The collagen protein is what creates that extra foam in this recipe! And i really enjoy the foam for some reason!
