- 1 a fist of raw spinach (star ingredient)
- 100 grits of strawberries
- Two or three ice cubes so that it is well spread.
This breakfast energy shake is so good and healthy. The protein at breakfast is essential and also with this shake will help reduce hunger in the morning. Add a portion of light yogurt and some fruit like fresh dates to have a balance of healthy vitamins.
Do not worry about spinach, because once they are blended, you will not even realize they are there and they are a huge source of dietary fiber.

Best Energy Shake Before Working Out
This is a tasty smoothie to drink right before you work out. It can act as a great pre-workout that’s still healthy. Blend up these ingredients together in your NutriBullet:
- 1 Banana
- 500 ml of skimmed milk
- 150 mg of Caffeine (you can get it here)

Why is this shake good? The protein of the milk will help you to recover in the training of your muscles, while the carbohydrates of the banana will give you that extra strength to get a couple more repetitions.
It is proven that caffeine and beta-alanine increase intensity, give you that extra little point to giving everything in the gym especially in the last repetitions.
