Winning Smoothie Combo


 

Chocolate milk is every athlete's 'go-to' for recovery. As it should be since cocoa is loaded with flavonoids and the milk adds protein and natural sugar. But we can do better. Adding fat and citrus will help the body absorb more nutrients. For example, just 1 tbsp of cocoa powder contains 4% of your daily iron needs. Iron is a supper finicky nutrient and vitamin C assists the body's absorption processes.
