The Fall Harvest Post-Workout Refueler

Kristine Keating

Try this pumpkin flavored post-workout smoothie made with simple whole food ingredients to refuel and repair. Pumpkin is a calming, warming fruit that adds fiber, nutrients, and an epic flavor. This smoothie tastes delicious and refreshing chilled with ice but is also amazing warm, for a more comforting drink after a heavy workout.
