I tried this recipe today for a post workout drink after I finished my exercise challenge. I used to enjoy a lot of Pina Coladas back when I cared very little about my health or fitness. Alcoholic cocktails are not exactly what BodyRockers (or athletes) should be drinking, but you can treat yourself with a nutritious version of this delicious cocktail with this recipe. Now I don’t mean to sound like a saint who never drinks alcohol. I actually like to have a drink every once in a while, but I am the kind of person who gets drunk after 1 cocktail or two white wine spritzers so that tends to be my limit. I am not trying to take any fun away from you, but you guys should know that if you drink and party every weekend you can’t complain about not seeing any progress in fat loss or workout performance. Alcohol makes you fat, slow and crazy people :)
Enjoy this amazing post workout Pina Colada!
You will need these ingredients:
1/2 a medium size bowl of pineapple, 1 banana, 1 glass of coconut milk, 50g of vanilla flavoured quality protein powder, 1 cup of chilled green tea, 1 glass of ice.
Add all of the ingredients into a food processor (except for the green tea) and mix them into a smoothie. Add the green tea at the end until you get the right consistency. The cocktail should be thick and not watery.
