Post Training Nutrient Rich Smoothie

This meal will take five minutes or less to prepare and it is a great option for the summer days that are fast approaching. Check it out below and give it a shot. I guarantee you will like it.
Here are a list of the ingredients you will need to prepare your smoothie. You should be able to find all the ingredients at your local Safeway or health food store, but if they don’t have what you’re looking for you can find it online.
1 cup of coconut water
½ cups coconut meat
1 tbsp raw cacao powder

½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 serving pack Sambazon Açai unsweetened
1 serving Whey-Pro 5

Blend all ingredients together using blender or food processor until well blended, then serve in a glass.
