After every workout, I always come home and make this smoothie. It's chock full of good, healthy ingredients and has a great combination of fats, carbs, and protein to aid in muscle recovery. It's also really tasty!!

Post-Workout Smoothie:
3 ice cubes
Handful of raw spinach
Large spoonful of plain greek yogurt
Spoonful of chia seeds
Chocolate soymilk
I blend all of these ingredients for a few seconds in my magic bullet, and viola....

(I swear it tastes yummier than it looks!!)
