Cycling Nutrition: Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

Cycling Nutrition: Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

What I like best about this smoothie is that it’s cheap and super easy to make as it only takes 2 to 5 minutes to prepare! Also, there’s no need to cook anything – just put everything into the blender, and blend away!

Packed with nutritious ingredients, this smoothie can be consumed before you ride if you’re looking for a pre-ride fuel. My suggestion: just add a bit of carbs (ex., oats) to keep you energized longer on the bike.

But what I like better is how this smoothie can also be a recovery meal after a workout, a long ride, or even, after a stressful bike commute! Rich in potassium and protein, a post-workout smoothie can help you and your muscles recover better after a strenuous physical activity.

Lastly, I also love how you can explore additional and alternative ingredients with this smoothie. Feel free to add more peanut butter, cacao nibs, or even yogurt depending on your taste preference or the nutrition that you feel your body requires. Just remember, take everything in moderation!
