Key Lime Stride PerfectAmino Smoothie Recipe

As weather begins to get warmer around the country, a cool, refreshing smoothie sounds better and better! The following smoothie recipe is like Key Lime pie in a glass.

 

Smoothie Description

As you start sipping on this refreshing smoothie, you may start imagining yourself taking in the sunshine and warm breeze of the Florida Keys. No problem, savor the moment! Limes, like all citrus fruit, are a great source of vitamin C which supports our immune system. It’s interesting to note that in several villages in West Africa where cholera epidemics occurred, the consumption of lime juice during the main meal of the day was found to protect against the contraction of cholera. The healing properties of lemons & limes have also been shown to alter or slow down cell division within the body, including cancer cells. Pucker up and enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain or vanilla coconut milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1 5.3oz cup So Delicious® Key Lime or plain yogurt alternative
  • Juice squeezed from 1 key lime or regular lime
  • 2 Tbsp. shredded coconut
  • 1 graham cracker sheet (optional)
  • 2 drops regular or vanilla crème liquid stevia (careful, a little goes a long way)
  • 1 scoop Lemon Lime flavor PerfectAminoXP powder
  • 2 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

 

Training Tip

Just like a dash of fresh lime juice can add some punch to a recipe, so can strides add a punch to your running. A stride is simply 15-20 seconds of running at mile to 5k race pace. I recommend inserting strides into one or two of your weekly easy runs, either in the middle or at the end of the run. I personally like to add five 20 second strides toward the end of an easy run while my legs are nice and warmed up. Each stride is followed by 20-30 seconds of easy jogging. Strides help keep our legs sharp and tuned for speed by activating some of the fast twitch muscle fibers. Simply put, strides will add a little zest to your running!
