S-Cap Smoothie

This is the easiest recovery drink, and nutritious too. It will put back fluid, electrolytes, calories, a little protein, some calcium, and a few carbohydrates. I start drinking these when the weather gets warm, around Easter.


1 cup of nonfat plain yogurt
1 cup orange juice
a couple drops of vanilla extract (to taste)
a frozen banana, broken into 4-5 pieces
1-2 cups of frozen fruit: strawberries, peaches, mangoes, etc.
2 S-caps, contents dumped in and capsule shell discarded

First make sure you have adult supervision nearby.

Scoop yogurt into the blender, then add orange juice, vanilla, frozen fruit, and dump the contents of 2 S-Caps on top of everything.

Turn blender on low, until ingredients are mixed, then increase speed until fully blended. Adjust ingredients to taste and thickness preference.

Pour into your favorite glass and add a colorful straw. I promise the straw makes it taste better!
