We all need a little boost before a workout, especially for early those morning classes. Dasha Einhorn of @thedashbody took over our channel for an IG Live pilates sculpt session – if you missed it you can check it out and save it here! She also shared one of her favorite pre-workout smoothie recipes. Nutrient-dense, easy on the stomach, and naturally sweet, this recipe is delish and good for you. The secret energy booster that makes this a morning must? An espresso shot!
1 cup of milk of choice
2 tbsp oats
2 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp cacao nibs (1 tbsp in smoothie, another one on top for crunchiness)
1 espresso shot
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender and enjoy 1-2 hours before your workout. Pro tip! To make it a post workout smoothie, leave the espresso shot out (or not, maybe you still want some of that caffeinated goodness), and add a pinch of salt to help restore electrolytes. Enjoy up to one hour after your workout.
