Blend up this salted caramel smoothie bowl after your next workout

Salt and caramel – is there anything better? Actually, yes – a healthy version. This is one of my go-to post-workout snacks. It helps replenish protein and glycogen stores and build lean muscles (which in turn burns calories – yay!).


The maca powder is what gives this dish a delightful toffee flavour. It also works to alleviate stress and anxiety in the body. Plus, it’s high in iron and great for boosting energy – much needed after a morning gym session! Whip this baby up in under two minutes. Enjoy!
