Recovery Smoothie

After a long ride, or run, the easiest way to aid your recovery is to start with a protein and good-carb laden smoothie. It's sweet, refreshing, and helps you kick-start your post-workout recovery regime. Great whole-grains, potassium, and quality protein make this our go-to recovery shake or meal replacement.
