This is my number one go-to recipe for preventing those foot cramps in the middle of the night, whether from running or lifting weights. Feel free to reduce the banana, and add some protein to offset the carbohydrate levels for a refreshing recovery drink after an intense workout. Make sure to take a hot bath before bed and you’ll wake up feeling fully-recovered, I promise.
Not to mention how quickly the coconut water and aloe vera juice is going to re-hydrate your body.
1/2 – 1 banana.
1 medium orange (any variety) juiced, with or without pulp
1 small – medium lemon, juice, without or without pulp
2oz aloe vera juice
8oz coconut water
Place all items into NutriBullet and process until smooth. Enjoy! (vegan/vegetarian). Makes approx 16oz.
