For all you endurance athletes, heres a great stimulating shake to drink pre-workout (about 1 hour before)…
One thing I’ve always loved (possibly too much at one time) is coffee. But now that I have much better balance with my health and mind, I can revisit some of my old addictions with a renewed outlook. And these days, I don’t just do plain old coffee; of course I find ways to increase the nutritional value. One of these ways is to combine it with immunity-boosting mushrooms, antioxidant-rich Cacao and the adaptogenic power of Astragalus!
But don’t be alarmed by all these “weird” add-ins, the taste and texture is sweet, creamy and amazing!
8 oz Califia Farms XX Espresso Cold Brew Almond Milk
1 tsp Om Mushrooms Immune Mushroom powder
1 tsp Om Mushrooms Chaga powder
2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
4 Dates (pitted)
3 Tbsp Hemp Seeds
1 Tbsp Chia Seed
30 drops Astragalus Extract
Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour and enjoy.
What better way than to wake up than with a sweet, creamy coffee with 30g of plantbased protein? Not only is this also great for an anytime pick-me-up but it also comes in handy as a postworkout recovery shake as well. And if you’re tired of cold smoothies in these chilly months of autumn, heat your plant milk first for a warm decadent treat.
8 oz Califia Farms XX Espresso Cold Brew Coffee (Cold or Hot)
1 serving Vanilla Vega Sport Performance Protein
3-4 Dates (pitted)
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Chia Seed
Cold Version (shown):
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Add Ice for a frostier consistency. Pour and enjoy!
Add the Banana, Dates, Cinnamon and Chia Seed to a high speed blender. Heat the cold brew (hahaha) on low/medium in a small saucepan on your stovetop just until small bubbles begin to form; then carefully pour into the blender jar along with the other ingredients. Blend on low setting first, slowly working up to high. Blend until smooth. Pour into a large mug and enjoy!
Fitness can be tough on your body. After working up a sweat, the last thing you want to do is another tedious workout in the kitchen. That said, you’ll be delighted that this smoothie can be prepped and blended in under 10 minutes. It’s creamy, refreshing, delicious and a powerful companion to your post-workout routine. And heck, the bright golden color is kinda pretty to look at too! To get it going, all you need is some Vega Sport Performance Protein and a few things from nature’s medicine cabinet; then you’ll be well on your way to making those gains again.
1 scoop Vanilla Vega Sport Performance Protein
1 cup Silk Unsweetened Original Cashewmilk
1 cup frozen Mango
1 Orange (peeled)
1 thumb Ginger (peeled)
1 tsp Chai Spice blend
Optional: Ice cubes
1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high speed until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass and garnish with some shredded Coconut. Enjoy 45 minutes to 1 hour after your workout.
So you just “hit the wall” after pushing yourself hard during this morning’s workout. You’re looking to get some energy back and recover so you can do it all again tomorrow. Am I getting warm? Well, look no further! This smoothie has got all the tricks of the trade when it comes to post-workout fuel!
Coconut Water helps hydrate and replace lost electrolytes, while the Banana and Maple Syrup restores some carbohydrate (for muscle glycogen). The Vega Sport, Avocado and seeds bring in the protein, Omega fatty acids, anti-inflammatory properties, BCAAs and Glutamine which are all vital in helping repair and build new muscle fiber.
But why the Green Coffee Powder, you ask? Well, coffee not only adds a deep flavor which compliments the Chocolate but green coffee also provides a low dose of caffeine (about half of a standard cup of coffee); which not only provides a nice gradual boost of energy but has been shown to help athletes recover quicker!
So overall, this smoothie is not only a nutritional powerhouse and tastes delicious but everything was carefully combined to assist you in getting back out there, doing whatever it is you do, quicker and more efficiently. I guess I’m pretty good at making stuff that sounds like a dessert but is insanely healthy! 😉

1 serving Vega Sport Performance Protein (Chocolate)
