Salted Caramel Post-Workout Smoothie Bowl

This salted caramel smoothie bowl is easy to whip up and ever so decadent. Try it out after your next workout!


Salt and caramel – is there anything better? Actually, yes – a healthy version. This is one of my go-to post-workout snacks. It helps replenish protein and glycogen stores and build lean muscles (which in turn burns calories – yay!).

The maca powder is what gives this dish a delightful toffee flavour. It also works to alleviate stress and anxiety in the body. Plus, it’s high in iron and great for boosting energy – much needed after a morning gym session! Whip this baby up in under two minutes. Enjoy!

Ingredients To Blend

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

  3. Decant the smoothie into a bowl and top with the toppings.
  4. Serve in with a spoon and tuck in!
