Pre-Workout Smoothie

 There are 3 optimal times to have protein; right when you wake up, 90 minutes before a workout or 15 minutes after a workout. I like to have mine before in a smoothie before because I feel it helps me stay energized through my exercise. This is my pre-workout smoothie.

Pre-Workout Smoothie
1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
1/2 yogurt
1.2 banana
1/2 of a large scoop of protein powder
1 cup mixed berries
1 cup spinach
1 tbsp green tea leaves

Blend all ingredients (my blender is broken so I use a food processor)

Makes a large, delicious smoothie!
