This is a delicious smoothie recipe.
Strawberries are high in fibre, Vitamin C and potassium – one of the main salts in isotonic drinks that can help prevent you getting cramps. Coconut oil helps boost your metabolism and immune system and cottage cheese is a great source of protein and calcium.
You can add ground flax seeds for extra fibre and omega 3 oils, oats for more carbs and whey protein powder for protein. Often people make the false assumption that consuming whey protein is going to build muscles, but actually you need to do specific types of weight training to build new muscle.
Whey protein helps repair the damage that endurance running will do to your body.
Add a spoonful of honey or Stevia, a natural sweetener, if you wish.
