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. This smoothie has everything you need to nourish you muscles post workout - a good dose of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, protein and L glutamine for muscular energy & repair.
