Post Ride Recovery Smoothie Recipe

When the weather turns cold, evolutionary habits kick in and we all tend to eat more this time of year. Incorporating a detox friendly smoothie into your diet at this time of year is a great way to keep you on track, remind you to eat mindfully the rest of the day, and pack in nutrients.

The Wahoo KICKR makes it easy to get a workout in no matter how cold it is outside—or how little time you have. But post-workout nutrition is crucial in allowing you to recover and do it all over again. That’s why I love this smoothie you can make it the blink of an eye! All you need is a high speed blender – no fancy tools or equipment. I added 1 cup of greens and I even used frozen spinach so there’s no need to have fresh produce on hand to whip this up. Fresh lemon juice makes this a slightly tart smoothie while also adding some great benefits like reducing inflammation and aiding digestion. Frozen mango makes this smoothie creamy and thick and complements a green apple for the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

If you’re enjoying this post- KICKR session, I recommend adding a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder to amp up the nutrients and help aid muscle recovery. But this smoothie is also a great option if your just looking to cleanse and reboot pre or post holiday! This refreshing and energizing smoothie will keep you pedaling strong all holiday long.

Recipe Serves 2 hungry riders:

1 cup spinach (frozen or fresh)

1 cup mango (frozen or fresh)

1 green apple

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 cup water or nut milk

Optional if having post workout- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

In a high speed blender combine all ingredients until smooth for about one minute. Once combined serve right away.

 

5 Reasons You Will Love the New KICKR

Cyclists don’t just ride for the fun of it. They do it for the sweat, the burn and even the pain because ultimately these things lead to great results. In the past, indoor training has sucked for those cyclists that are used to training outdoors. Understanding that struggle, we decided to do something about it. Enter: KICKR 16, Wahoo’s new smart trainer, created for cycling masochists who crave a good ass kicking (because they know it will help them become a machine).

Here are just some of the reasons KICKR 16 rocks.

It’s Responsive

While you might not be racing up an actual mountain, the feel is real. You don’t feel like you are on an indoor trainer; you feel like you are pushing yourself to your limits outside. KICKR 16 helps recreate the same experience you feel on your favorite outdoor rides. All that’s missing is the wind in your face. (But you can always use a fan for that.)

It’s Connected

KICKR 16 connects to all your devices and most of your favorite apps. It’s the only smart trainer keeping pace with leading apps and device developers like ZWIFT and Apple. No other trainer has as many 3rd party software integrations. Also, the new LED status lights make connecting your devices much easier.

It’s Quiet

Whether you live in a large home or a tiny loft, quietness is an invaluable quality in a smart trainer. At only 61 dB, KICKR 16 is so quiet you can hear your heart pounding. Your spouse, children, and neighbors will thank you later.

It’s Powerful

KICKR 16 is more powerful than ever before, meaning it will kick your ass and you will love it. With up to 2,000 watts of resistance and the superior stability of the KICKR construction, you can be guaranteed to get the most out of indoor training. The only limitation is yourself. Good luck walking tomorrow, friend.

It’s Team Sky Approved

Team Sky has been using the KICKR for the past three years. At the 2016 Tour de France, Chris Froome used the new KICKR in his warm-up before winning the stage 18 mountain time-trial. If the best in the world approves, you should too.
