Orange-Avocado Fruit Smoothie: Get Ripped on Goodness

Easy-to-make, and all natural, but does this fruit smoothie actually provide performance-enhancing benefits? Read on to find out…

Orange-Avocado Fruit Smoothie

This spring break skip the cheap tequila shots, and get ripped…in a good way!

A week’s worth of exercise followed by post-workout fruit smoothies could lead you towards “well-toned” greatness.

Keep in mind, taking fitness and nutrition advice from a online cafe owner who pushes both super-food smoothies and chocolate muffins is suspect at best.

But from what I have read…

  • Bananas “are just as effective as sugar-laced sports drinks for refueling during exercise.”
  • Oranges are packed with vitamin C, which helps the body absorb iron, “critical for transporting oxygen to the muscles”,
  • And, what superstar athlete doesn’t eat avocados?

Place all three in a blender with water (good for re-hydration) and fresh grated ginger for bangin’ flavor!

Then engage your core (always important) as you blend it ALL together. 😉

Sounds like a performance-enhancing smoothie to me!

With that said, there is no bulletproof evidence that this fruit smoothie will improve your performance in any way possible.

But I will guarantee you this >> it tastes 100 times better than cheap tequila shots.

Blend away…and get ripped!!!
