Recipe of the Month: Green Tea Smoothie
May 24, 2019 | by Kourtney Gordon, Performance Dietitian

TIPS FROM YOUR DIETITIAN

This fresh and zesty smoothie was developed in Fortius’ Game Changers Bistro and is a fan favourite for kick-starting recovery after intense workout sessions. As is, this smoothie already provides almost 20g of protein, but you can boost the protein content by substituting milk for water, adding a spoonful of nut butter, or supplementing with a half-scoop of your favourite protein powder. To boost fibre content, try adding a good source of fibre like oats, chia or flaxseeds.
