It’s been awhile since I have done a Thirsty Thursday post that was non-alcoholic. So, I figured it was about time to do one! I’ve been trying to be a bit healthier as of late and not drink as much (not evident by the Thirsty Thursday posts!) because in a few short weeks I am running the Los Angeles Marathon!! It is my first time running a full marathon, so in the last month and especially these last few weeks I need to take care of my body. A few times post-long run I was not hungry (you would think the opposite, right), would not eat, and literally had to lay in the fetal position because I didn’t feel well. So, this past weekend after my last 20 miler (yay!) before the marathon, I made the below smoothie and didn’t feel sick! I packed it with electrolytes, potassium, and is one of the best smoothies I have ever made! I hope you give this delicious smoothie a try as well!
1 cup Coconut Water
1 Banana, frozen
2 TBSP Coconut Flakes
3-4 Pitted Dates
1 TBSP Vanilla
Blend all ingredients together and serve immediately
P.S. Happy World Pistachio Day!! Grab a bag and get crackin’!
