Energy boosting smoothie recipe - Women's Health and Fitness magazine



The goal: Energy boost

The glass: Caffeine can provide a quick energy boost while bananas impart ready glycogen for explosive physical energy. The espresso’s caffeine may also benefit exercise and brain performance by reducing perceived effort and extending workout time. The banana will also help to optimise workout intensity.

The rules: Skip the syrups and other constituents of commercial coffee drinks – they add sugar and kilojoules. If you need sweetness, add a teaspoon of honey.

The foods: Cooled espresso


  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1 cup of cooled coffee
  • 1 cup your choice of milk
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 banana
