Performance Nutrition: Orange Vanilla Mango Shake

Whew, it is HOT outside! A few weeks ago my hamstring started cramping during a run and I realized I needed to be more on it with regards to my hydration and electrolytes if I wanted to have productive training sessions in this ridiculous heat and humidity.

So, I came up with this shake to help myself hydrate and start recovering as soon as possible after runs. This shake is a great option for about an hour before or immediately after any intense training session. It is refreshing, delicious, and an easy way to hydrate before or after exercise while giving your muscles the nutrients they need.

Orange Vanilla Mango Shake

8-12 oz water

1-1.5 cups frozen mango chunks

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (whey)

1 scoop orange electrolyte powder

1-2 scoops BeetElite (optional add-in before intense aerobic training, WODs, or team sports with lots of running)

Toss all the ingredients into a blender. Blend well and enjoy!

This shake is legit tasty. I am a big fat of BeetElite and that’s why the picture is of a light pink shake. Beets boost stamina for endurance and high intensity training.

Based on my estimates, the shake has the following macronutrient profile: 25g protein - 25-35g carb - 0-1g fat
