Sweat to Sweet: Making My Post-Workout Smoothie a Whole Lot Tastier

- Fitness, Food, Lifestyle

Born Sweet Zing

I would say after making more of an effort over the past two years, I finally feel back in shape. That doesn’t mean I’m anywhere close to perfect or meeting my goals, but it does mean that when I take the time to work out, I make sure to it counts. When I go to the gym, or on a run, I make sure I’m going to feel sore the next day. That’s the person I used to be when I worked out, and I’m glad to finally be at that point again – pushing myself past tired and to exhausted. With this routine, I need to replenish my body post work out. I have a go-to, post-workout smoothie I’ve been making for over a year. It takes away any additional hunger I have after working out and is full of protein and goodness to replenish my body.

kale smoothie

I love to jam pack as much kale into my post-workout smoothie as possible, but the only problem is, sometimes it tastes a little bland, or a little too green (hello there leafy kale). That’s why I like to sweeten things up a bit with Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener!

kale smoothie ingredients

Want to try out this smoothie? Here’s what you need:

  • Kale (the amount is up to you, I try to pack as much as possible into one smoothie)
  • A handful of blueberries
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 packet of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener

place kale in smoothie

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Kale is VERY leafy, so if the smoothie isn’t as smooth as you want it to be, add more almond milk, or don’t put in as much kale to begin with. I personally don’t mind the extra texture. Then, ENJOY!
