When the warm summer comes to an end and we change it to a colder and darker autumn I Always get a small cold.. Idon´t like to feel tired but I guess it´s good somehow. Maybe like a restart after the Cold have gone away.

I like to drink this simple smoothie filled with vitamins when I feel like I need new good energy!

Water or apple juice.

  • Sounds delicious -I love ginger and I’ve just read somewhere that apple is really good for helping you recover 🙂

    It sounds lovely – I shall try it after my weekend run! Thank you.

  • Pumpkin spice smoothie (or any orange-colored smoothie or soup) with fresh ginger :)*

  • This has become one of my favorites! I add ice and water up to about 600 ml and sometimes a couple of teaspoons of sugar. It’s really yummy, not at all heavy like you might think with the avocado. It whips up almost to a foam with this amount of water. I wonder if it would make a sorbet in an ice cream maker but I haven’t tried that yet. Thanks!

  • oh wow, this is one delicious smoothie! Would’ve never thought of using avocado but it’s actually really really good and the color is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

    Here’s another smoothie recipe that I really enjoy drinking after winter workouts:

    Citrus Ginger Smoothie (1 serving)
    2 clementines, peeled and divided into sections
    1 banana
    1/4″ piece of fresh ginger, skin removed
    1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
    a few ice cubes (4-5)

    Blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into a glass and enjoy 🙂
