The Juice Master Jason Vale shares four of his favourite drinks for runners.
The juices and smoothies below have been designed to be the perfect balance of potassium and sodium, (for lactic acid build up and cramps) as well as being incredibly hydrating.
The celery in the juices and smoothies helps to flush the body of excess carbon dioxide. The beetroot is there to widen the blood vessels allowing more oxygen to circulate. Altogether, these juices and smoothies are the perfect nutritional balance for runners, the first two are particularly good fuel for a marathon.
Juice Master’s Marathon Smoothie
Inch slice of large pineapple
1 × peeled lime
3 × apples
(golden delicious pref)
2 sticks celery
One third of cucumber
1 × bulb raw beetroot
1 × small ripe avocado
1 × banana
1 × teaspoon hemp
Protein powder (optional)
How to make:
Juice the apples, celery, pineapple, beetroot, lime, and cucumber. Put the avocado flesh into blender along with banana, juice and ice. Blend until smooth. If too thick simply add more apple juice.
