Toss your chemical induced pre workouts and give this all natural pre workout smoothie a go.
The problem with pre workout supplements today is simple.
Unless you’re a supplement savvy
You probably don’t know half of the ingredients listed on the packaging.
And more so, you become victim to consuming foreign substances
This practice can put you at risk for negative health effects later down the line..
However today we’ll keep it simple
Our home made pre workout recipe consists of 3 SIMPLE INGREDIENTS which yields over 200mg of caffeine!
An amount higher than a lot of pre workouts in the market
and WITHOUT the harsh chemicals.
- Nescafe Tasters Choice Instant Coffee – 65mg per serving
- 1 Green Tea bag yields 50mg per tea bag
- First boil or microwave water. I find microwaving a cup of water is the easiest and most efficient.
- Steep 2 Green tea bags in the hot water for 5 minutes (Yields 100mg of caffeine)
- After you remove the tea bags, add 2 servings of Nescafe Tasters Choice Instant Coffee

Different Ways To Drink

- Use your chilled pre-workout

Caffeine Usage Warning
In an article published by the Mayoclinic, the recommended amount a healthy adult can consume is about 400 mg. Anything more is toxic to your body.
If you’ve ever experienced a crash or received a migraine drinking cups of coffee, chances are you went overboard with the caffeine.
Wrap it up
So there you have it, a simple and an extremely effective natural pre workout.
