It’s back! My most popular blog series first began with my Crockpot Recipes for the Busy Athlete, followed by 30 Minute Meals for the Busy Athlete, and Instant Pot Recipes for the Busy Athlete. This time, I’m sharing a new collection of simple, nutritious smoothie recipes to help you rehydrate, re-energize, and recover!

I’ve gathered 25 recipes thanks to fellow registered dietitians and food bloggers. These recipes require little effort and a blender to prepare.

Smoothies are a fantastic way for athletes to get loads of nutrients in with little time and effort. They help to increase your intake of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables which can help fight inflammation and speed up the recovery process. For athletes that have a difficult time tolerating solid foods post-workout, smoothies are a great solution. They can also be tailored to fit your needs regardless if you’re trying to lose, gain, or maintain your weight.

The most common question that comes up when discussing smoothies with athletes is “what protein powder should I use?” I have reviews on both whey protein powders and plant-based protein powders to help answer this question. Now let’s get to these smoothies!
