Raspberry Recovery Smoothie

Heading into the warmer months in Brisbane the thought of a hot breakfast to meet your recovery needs isn’t always overly appealing. As smoothie can definitely do the trick – rehydrate (tick), protein for recovery (tick),  carbohydrates to replenish (tick) and a source of anti-oxidants to assist (tick). 


  • 200-250mL milk

  • 2-3 Tbsp plain yoghurt (Chobani, Rokeby farms & Yo pro are all good high protein options)

  • 2/3 cup raspberries (frozen is best and usually cheaper too!

  • 1/2 banana

  • 1/4 cup oats (optional, but an easy way to add in extra fibre + carbohydrate)

  • Ice cubes

  • 1 tsp honey (optional to sweeten)


  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth

You can mix up the types of fruit you use e.g. blueberries, strawberries. For a hit of greens a handful of baby spinach leaves mixes well too and isn’t an over powering flavour.
