Are you looking for a way of replacing lost electrolytes after a workout? Whip up a smoothie made from fresh or frozen fruit, ice and yoghurt. If drunk within the 30-minute window period after a workout, a smoothie will replenish much of what the body has lost during the gym session and will also reduce food cravings.
