Raise your shaker cups to the amazing athletes in Rio and celebrate this summer’s Olympics with some of the popular super-fruits of Brazil! It’s perfect for enjoying on those hot summer days after a day of play. Naturally refreshing and high in electrolytes like potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus, the coconut water is excellent for hydration. For maximum benefit, choose an organic coconut water with no sugar added like ZICO, which also an official sponsor of this summer’s games! The banana and almond butter are high in potassium, fiber, and antioxidants, providing many cardiovascular and digestive benefits. And for replenishing those muscles, a couple scoops of plant-based protein makes this smoothie a real chocolate victory!
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
