As we all know, running just 30 minutes can improve your mood, memory and motivation. It is really important that after doing an invigorating run we refuel to maximise this!
Blending your own smoothie allows you to combine proteins, carbohydrates, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. This provides a powerful combination of ingredients that will restore and energise your body.
THE INGREDIENTS – WHAT’S IN IT
