Healthy Pre-Workout Smoothie Recipe

Bridge to Brisbane Day ambassador Shan Cooper from My Food Religion loves to make healthy meals that also taste delicious! As a special treat for Bridge to Brisbane Day participants, she is delighted to share two of her favourite exercise-friendly recipes.

This smoothie is best consumed before a workout because it’s not too heavy, but will give you plenty of energy, thanks to the nutrients in the greens and the little bit of fruit! Enjoy!


  • Handful of baby spinach
  • ½ pear, chopped
  • Frozen cucumber, chopped
  • Frozen zucchini, chopped
  • Ginger, grated
  • Coconut water
  • Regular water

Note: Shan freezes her vegetables for smoothies because they give the smoothie an icy, creamy texture without having to add ice cubes to the blender.


Add into blender and blend away!

Add liquids to your desired consistency and blend again if required.

Pour it straight into a cup or jar and you have your yummy pre-workout smoothie!

You can also watch Shan make it herself here.
