The Berry Boost Smoothie Recipe

Here we have it – The Berry Boost Smoothie Recipe! This recovery drink is one of the smoothies we have been serving at the Dairy Bar on The Complete Natural Recovery Tour, and because we have been getting so many compliments at the Dairy Bar (you guys are too kind) we figured we would let you in on our (not so secrete) recipe…

One of the main ingredients in this smoothie recipe is Milk, which is an excellent source of protein and is made up of the dairy proteins whey and casein, which are well-recognised in performance nutrition.

Milk also provides:

  • Carbohydrate (lactose) to begin the refuelling of energy stores after exercise;
  • Fluid with electrolytes (e.g. potassium) to assist with hydration;
  • A matrix of vitamins and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iodine and B

We also use ProU greek style yogurt in this recipe, a delicious and natural way of getting high levels of calcium, protein and vitamin D in our recovery smoothies.

This recipe is super simple, packs a punch (nutritionally speaking).. and is one of our fav recovery meals.

The Berry Boost Benefits:

16.8G Protein

100% or your RI of Calcium

100% of your RI Vitamin D

32% of your RI for Vitamin B12

(based on the ingredients listed)

In order to perform at your best next time, it’s important to give your recovery the same attention as your training session or workout.

“Eating well is essential and adapting your nutritional intake to your sport is a necessity.” – Rob Kearney, International Rugby Player.
