The Best DIY Pre-Workout Shake
Load all the ingredients into a blender.(1 shot of espresso or your favorite freeze-dried coffee dissolved in a little boiling water)
Blend until thick and creamy.
Chocolate milk is a popular and convenient choice for pre-workout fuel. And a quick hit of sugar and some easy-to-digest protein does check some of the boxes for a solid pre-workout shake. But why buy a bottle of engineered-to-last-a-year, store-bought crap when you can make it yourself? If it’s strength and health you’re after, we can do far better with some nutrient-dense but just as delicious ingredients.
Inspired by a simple homemade chocolate milk recipe of cocoa powder, icing sugar, and a drop of vanilla extract, enter The Best DIY Pre-Workout Shake. Instead of sugar, this recipe uses a ripe banana for a sweet hit of carbohydrate and an added potassium boost to stop you from cramping mid-workout. I’ve also mixed in almonds to maximize your energy levels and pack an extra punch of protein and magnesium.
For the final flourish, I’ve added chocolate’s best bedfellow, coffee, for a perfect pre-workout pick-me-up. Enjoy.
