I'm a smoothie junkie. There, I said it. I like smoothies for breakfast before hard training since I don't perform well immediately after eating solid food and I'm a notoriously late sleeper and am usually rushed to get out the door. I also prefer a good smoothie recipe over commercial "recovery" drinks, which are typically little more than refined sugar and protein.
I've been fortunate to know Katie since she moved to Colorado Springs many years ago. Not only is she a friend and occasional training partner but she's also been an incredible asset when it comes to discussing nutrition and product development. Today we have something she created that's a little less serious: Beta Red Brownies!
Emanuela Bandol knows all about training endurance; she's raced 8 Ironmans, 16 half Ironmans, countless Olympic Distance triathlons and marathons, the AG 2017 ITU Off-Road Triathlon World Champion—and a whole lot more. So, when she shares a recipe with us, we know it's worth sharing. Enjoy!
