1 small banana, frozen
1 cup pomegranate juice
2 Tablespoons unflavored or vanilla whey protein powder
1 teaspoon honey
1 handful of ice cubes
Prep Time: 7min | Cook Time: 5min
Place potatoes (whole, with skin-on) on microwave safe plate and pierce with a fork 2-3 times. Microwave on high until soft, 4-6 minutes. Remove from microwave and cool until next step.
Blend all ingredients, including potatoes, in a blender until smooth. Add more honey or banana to sweeten as desired. Add more ice to thicken.
Microwave or boil the potatoes ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
Try placing the potatoes and the banana in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for even faster post-exercise prep.
Feel free to vary the types of fruit or fruit juices that you add to the smoothie. Try frozen berries or tart cherry juice for a new flavor option.
If you like a thicker smoothie, try adding Greek yogurt.
