Smoothie Recipe

I have had several requests for some of my favorite pre and post workout smoothies, and some things in between! So today I decided to share some of my most popular ones, their purpose and how darn good they taste.

Pre Workout Smoothies:

My pre work out smoothies and blends center around three simple rules 1. Lower on the calorie spectrum, 2. Simple to make (no difficult to find ingredients) and the most important, 3. Taste. You want to select blends or foods that are easy to digest, that provide quick bursts of energy.

Lemon Lime Sublime (Preworkout Supp):

  • 1 scoop Vega Sport Pre Workout Lemon Lime
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • Ice & Blend
  • Green Smoothie (Natural/No Preworkout)

For those days I run out of preworkout or don’t feel like feeling jittery. This smoothie is absolutely delicious and fills me with tons of energy, the trade off is that it is higher in sugar than my Lemon Lime Sublime.

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 large apple, cored, any variety
  • 1 banana
  • ⅓ cup rolled oats (Optional, if not soaked the smoothie can be grainy in texture)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Post Workout Smoothies

The Snoopy

  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 scoop Bodylogix protein powder (or vanilla flavored protein)
  • 1 cup vanilla Soymilk (Or almond milk of your choice)
  • Water & Ice

The Jacked Snoopy (Extra Protein)

  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 scoop Bodylogix protein powder (or vanilla flavored protein)
  • 1 cup Soymilk (Or almond milk of your choice)
  • ¼ block of silken tofu
  • ½ cup Berry Cherry blend
  • Water & Ice

Cinderella

  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein
  • ¼ cup rolled oats (pre soaked, I usually throw it in some water before I go to the gym)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Agave (Or Honey)
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon (fresh is best!)

This will kick your sweet tooth right in the &$#!
