Green Smoothie Recipe

After I posted my original vid I got so many questions about my green drink I decided to make this video. I thought this was answer any possible question about the drink. It didn’t. I still get questions. My version of this drink is constantly changing. I still drink it often and I change the ingredients with the seasons. I also use Chia seeds instead of flaxseeds. The song is an instrumental by the late Isaac Hayes from the Truck Turner soundtrack. After his immensely popular song “Shaft” came out Hayes spent much of his career doing songs for movie soundtracks. This song, “Hung Up On My Baby” was made popular when it was sampled by the Geto Boys for their song “My Mind’s Playin’ Tricks On Me”.

    I am just starting to train for the Mudder in Vancouver in June (57 years old). How often do you drink your smoothie? Is it a training aid, or just for health? Should it, or something similar be consumed right before, or right after a training session. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

      I vary it up really, Ian. Sometimes I will go several days in a row with this drink and there are times that I go a week or two without. Pre-workout I generally don’t eat all that much. Maybe an apple or a banana will suffice. Just as long as my stomach isn’t growling I can usually make it through a training session without dying. I think all of those “energy enhancing” pre-workout supplements are a bunch of shit.

      Post-workout I usually have this drink or something similar. I may even just eat food (what a concept, right?) The common theme is protein consumption. Some other variations of this drink might be to just throw some hemp protein in a blender with some almond milk, honey, banana, frozen blueberries, and some raw cocoa powder. Hope that helps.

      Good luck with your Mudder!
