This is one of my favourite smoothies the help recovery after a heavy workout. It's simple, tasty, and the L-Glutamine provides noticeable support for muscle recovery, energy and soreness. L glutamine is probably best known for it's use in sport, exercise and recovery, however it's also fantastic for immunity, digestion and energy.
