We're ditching high-sugar drinks and heavy-chemical sips in favor of bursting-with-vitamins smoothies. In our June issue, we begged smoothie master Alex Vandermark (owner of The Juicery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire) to teach us how to make his Pine-Ango-Beet-Tango, a yummy brew of tropical fruits, strawberries, and beets. The vitamin-dense concoction is perfect for gym rats since root vegetables increase energy, stimulate blood flow, and aid in muscle recovery. Need an extra oomph? Add a tablespoon of flaxseed oil to Vandermark's recipe to deliver a big dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which lower cholesterol, improve memory, and ease joint pain. Read on for the yummy smoothie recipe to chase your next major gym session. Want more recipes from our favorite smoothie masters?
