Energy-Packed Pre-Workout Green Smoothie

11.23.2016

It’s important to fuel your body before exercising, especially if you’re planning an intense workout. Burning calories is definitely a pro when it comes to working out, but you also want to make sure you’re giving your body enough fuel to make it through your workout so your muscles can handle what you throw at them. Loading up on hydrating, carb-rich fruits and veggies pre-workout gives you what you need without leaving you feeling too weighed down. A smoothie is the perfect light meal – and bonus – it’s a great to-go meal too.

This nutrition-packed pre-workout smoothie contains strawberries and banana to provide the body with energy-rich carbs that provide your body with ready energy. Beets contain nitrates which the body converts to nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and brings more oxygen-rich blood to your muscles while working out. Coupled with an organic energy powder from The Natural Citizen, it’s a powerhouse smoothie.

The Natural Citizen Organic Energy Powder contains a special blend of quinoa, maca, green tea powder, and Rhodiola rosea – no other ingredients, fillers, artificial or natural flavors are added. The powder is vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Can you see why we love this powder so much?

    Can you chopped raw beets and freeze them for future smoothies? I bought three in a bunch and don’t want them to do to waste. Thanks!

  2. Leila says:

    Hey! Can we substitute the protein powder with almond butter?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Leila,

      Yes, you can totally substitute the energy powder for the almond butter.

      Enjoy!
