Kourtney Kardashian’s power-packed smoothie is part of her daily workout – here’s the recipe

We give you the KUWTK star’s post-workout smoothie, which includes MCT Oil and BrainOn organic superfood, and two more great options

Power-packed smoothies have become a big trend among celebrities and  Kourtney Kardashian  is someone who is leading the trend. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star follows a strict post-workout morning routine which includes a healthy banana smoothie that includes some very special – and some would say unusual! – secret ingredients. On her lifestyle website Poosh, Kourtney revealed that she drinks her banana smoothie containing bone broth, MCT Oil and an organic superfood, and she’s already noticed it revitalizes her instantly.

The smoothie also improves digestive health

After her workout, Kourtney wants to help her muscles recover from physical strain and give her digestive system a healthy boost, and this smoothie helps take care of both:

Kourtney’s banana and bone broth smoothie

  • 1 cup organic almond milk
  • One organic banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon MCT oil
  • 1 scoop bone broth protein
  • One individual pack of BrainOn (an organic superfood)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 scoop ice

Combine all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.

The purpose behind each ingredient

Each ingredient in Kourtney’s smoothie plays a key role. For example, banana helps the body replenish energy thanks to its carbohydrates, potassium and hydrate, while bone broth provides protein to help muscles to recover faster.

BrainOn from E3Live is an energy-boosting superfood to help improve your mood and increase clarity and focus. MCT Oil, derived entirely from coconut oil, is included to help your body achieve ketosis, a metabolic state that helps your body burn fat.

Green smoothies have become the new trend among celebrities

If you want to start drinking smoothies to recover from your daily workouts. Here are a few other options for you to try, in a variety of flavors, but all based around bananas.

Spinach smoothie

  • One handful fresh spinach
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • One banana (frozen, if you want it creamier)
  • One green apple
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Ice cubes

What are the benefits? The spinach helps oxygenate the blood and improve athletic performance, since it’s rich in chlorophyll. The apple and lemon help clear toxins from the body and speed up fat-burning.

Peanut butter smoothie

We know that nuts are a great workout food since they provide protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids, so a sweet and nutritious peanut butter smoothie is another great option:

  • 1 heaping spoon of organic peanut butter
  • One banana
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1/2 celery stick
  • Soy milk
  • Ginger
  • Ice cubes

One of the benefits of peanuts is that they contain resveratrol, a fantastic antioxidant for cells. The vitamins in this smoothie come from the carrot, rich in vitamin A and C, while the ginger and celery are great for reducing muscle pain after a workout, thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties.
