Fit Tips

Hydration Helper: Having a liquid snack helps with hydration, which is essential for your overall health.

Iron Maiden: Spinach is an excellent source of energy-boosting iron, and the vitamin C in the pineapple, mango and lime juice enhances your body’s ability to absorb it.

Fiber-Full: The fruits and vegetables in this recipe make it high in fiber, which makes this smoothie satisfying and helps you get closer to your daily goal of 25 grams.

Perfect Postworkout Snack: The whey protein is a great way to quickly deliver amino acids to help with muscle repair and growth after training. The recipe is also loaded with fast-acting, whole-food carbohydrates to further aid in recovery.
