Looking for a quick and easy recipe for pre or post workout fuel? These cookies paired with this smoothie are your two new best friends.

@Toneitup nails it again by creating a super simple cookie recipe that seriously only takes 5 minute to make plus this smoothie that fills you up without feeling bloated or sluggish. 

I made some modifications to fit the cookies & smoothie to match my necessities. Bananas don't make me feel great so I swapped them out for steamed then frozen cauliflower. Plus, I added Mizuba Matcha to the smoothie for a little caffeine energy. I also added Collagen protein powder to the cookies to add an extra beauty & gut boost.
