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.
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
- Blend spinach and almond milk until smooth.
- Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
*Use frozen fruit to make smoothie cold.
