Audrey Herndon | Mar 31 2021 | Tags: Pre-Workout Smoothie

Fueling your body with a protein packed meal before you get your body moving is the first step in a successful workout. By consuming the right food, you can give your body the extra energy required to make the most out of your exercise. 

There are numerous options from which you can choose from ranging from a regular cup of coffee to pre workout supplements manufactured with added ingredients such as creatine and amino acids. We strongly recommend that you heighten your focus on pre workout smoothies as your preferred energy boosters. Smoothies are made using natural ingredients and what's best is that you can make yourself a quick one at the comfort of your home using simple products on your kitchen shelf. 

Pre workout routines

We have compiled the top three best pre workouts for men to using nutritious fruits and veggies. These recipes are guaranteed to help you through your workout and even spare you some energy once you're done!

1. Kiwi and Kale Smoothie 


  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar 
  • 1 SmoothieBox Green Smoothie Mix
  • 1 tablespoon smooth unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 kiwifruit (peeled)
  • 2 cups kale (stems and leaves)
  • 1 ½ cups skim milk 


  1. After mixing all the ingredients in a food processor, blend them until you achieve the desired smoothness.
  2. Serve and Enjoy

This smoothie is packed with a heavy content of essential vitamins with the most notable ones being vitamins A, C, and K. On top of this, the kiwi and kale smoothie is also guaranteed to give you an extra boost of calcium and iron, as well as the much needed protein for your workout.

2. Blueberry Chia Blast 


  • 1 ½ cups of coconut milk 
  • 1 SmoothieBox Berry Smoothie Mix
  • ½ cups of soft silken tofu or greek yogurt
  • 1 serving of frozen blueberries
  • 1 scoop of honey
  • 1 scoop of chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of protein powder, preferably vanilla.


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender until you achieve the desired smoothness.
  2. Serve and enjoy

This smoothie is both energy-boosting and delicious while also being satisfying and filling. However, you should be warned that this combination will promptly begin to thicken up when blended, so we recommend that you drink it immediately after you finish preparing it.  This smoothie is a perfect for a pre workout snack, given that it combines the slow-release energy from the oats with the quicker-release energy from the banana. The outcome is a protein-rich chocolate treat that will keep you energized for hours. 

3. Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Smoothie 


  • 1 cup of milk 
  • 1 SmoothieBox Chocolate Smoothie Mix
  • 1 cup of oats 
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein in powder form


  1. Pour the milk into the food processor, add the chocolate protein powder, add the smoothie mix, followed by the oats, and then the chopped banana. 
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve and enjoy

These pre workout smoothies tailored for men will give you the nutrition you need to perform your best. The ingredients are high in vitamin c, potassium, and magnesium which are incredibly important to include in a healthy diet. Making any one of these delicious smoothies is guaranteed to give you the ultimate workout experience!
