The Perfect Pre-Workout Green Smoothie Recipe

pre-workout green smoothie

Drinking green smoothies isn’t a diet—it’s a lifestyle. It’s about taking care of your body and staying healthy. In addition to fueling your body with green smoothies, we benefit so much from (you guessed it) exercise! Good old-fashioned increase-your-heart-rate and sweat-it-out exercise. To fuel your body while you get that heart rate up, we suggest a nutrient-rich pre-workout green smoothie.

You can read our whole list of pre-workout ingredients that we love adding to green smoothies here.

Pre-Workout Green Smoothie

Course: Breakfast, Drinks
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2
The best kinds of pre-workout foods are filled with protein, good carbs, healthy fats. These ingredients help you stock up on energy, and keep you full for a long time. The apple, banana, rolled oats, coconut oil, and (of course) leafy greens make the perfect combination for a pre-workout green smoothie you can drink before every workout!


  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups almond milk unsweetened
  • 1 apple
  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Blend spinach and almond milk until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*Use frozen fruit to make smoothie cold.

    Hello SgS,

    Thanks for responding! I thought this smoothie was for pre-workout? Would this be enough to get through my workout? And what be good for post workout? Thanks

      Hi Maggie,

      Whoops! That was my mistake! I meant to say pre-workout. And I definitely think this recipe is a great choice to help you get through your workout. But always listen to your body. If you feel like you need a little more fuel. Try having a handful of almonds or another protein along with a big glass of water.
