Top 5: Smoothies for boxers

Nutritionist Marc Fell shares five great recipes for smoothies that will help boxers

1. Pre-training/breakfast smoothie
THIS smoothie contains quality sources of carbohydrates in the form of porridge oats and different fruits in order to provide the necessary energy to fuel the intended training session. A quality source of protein in the form of Greek yoghurt is also included to promote muscle growth and prevent the breakdown of muscle during training whilst also being packed full of vitamins and minerals with the inclusion of spinach, fruits and yoghurt.

Ingredients
• 200g Greek yoghurt
• Banana
• 1/2 cup sliced mango
• 2 x handfuls of spinach
• Table-spoon peanut butter
• 50g porridge oats
• 1 x serving whey protein (optional)
• Half cup water and ice

Method: BLEND AND SERVE!
