Smoothies are a great snack to have before a workout as they are easy to digest but can pack some serious nutrition in them at the same time.
They’re refreshing and a great source of energy before training – it’s also easy to sneak in some nutrient dense vegetables too without altering the sweet taste that the fruit provides!

Smoothies are simple to make and can really help you to increase the amount of fruit and vegetables in your diet.
✓ For added convenience, cut up some fruit ahead of time and weigh it into the correct portions then place in a freezer bag and freeze – get out another day and no effort will be required!
✓ These smoothie recipes also make a great post-workout treat too, and will keep in a cool bag for a couple of hours if you need to drink them on the go!
✓ If you have ice pop moulds, you can also make a great snack by simply freezing the smoothie into individual ice pops. You can make the ice pops extra decadent by adding some extra slices of chopped fruit to the moulds before adding in the smoothie mixture.
