This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of AllWhites Egg Whites. All opinions are 100% mine.
The frustrating part about “good nutrition” for me is that nobody agrees on what is best. I’m not the type of person to just latch on to one philosophy or approach and simply dismiss all of the others…which often leaves my head swimming in confusion.
There is no area where this is more true for me than when it comes to recommendations for pre- and post-workout meals. There are a million different opinions and options, and when I try to plan my workout around my regular meals to leave room for the “extra” meals, I’m really tempted to just give up exercising altogether. (In fairness, it doesn’t take much for me to get to the point of wanting to give up exercise…)
But one thing most sources agree on is the importance of protein, especially following a workout. For me, that often means a hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit, which frankly gets old after a few days in a row.
That’s why I love the idea of a protein smoothie made with AllWhites Egg Whites. I was excited to try one of their signature protein smoothies for this post, and I can honestly say that we’ll be keeping a carton in our fridge for quick smoothies in the future. (In addition to post-workout smoothies, I think adding AllWhites to our regular smoothies will make them more filling and nutritious for the girls, whether for breakfast or popcorn-and-smoothie nights!)
This mango-peach protein smoothie is delicious, refreshing and filling, making it the perfect post-workout snack in winter or summer!
- 2 cups ripe mango, cut up fresh,
- 1 medium to large ripe peach, pitted and cut up
- 2/3 cup AllWhites® egg whites, 100% liquid egg whites
- dash fresh grated nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth.
When using frozen fruit, add additional water, 1-2 tablespoons at a time, until your smoothie reaches your desired consistency.
