You need some energy to get the most out of your Pilates class but it’s not much fun doing a roll up on a full stomach.

So here’s a great smoothie recipe I make all the time. The oats are slow release carbohydrates and the almond milk is a great source of protein. Don’t be put off by the idea of the spinach- you really can’t taste it and even my seven year old will ask for a glass when I’m making a batch:

Pilates Energy Smoothie

1 -2 handfuls of spinach leaves
1 handful of blueberries
1 apple
Half a carrot
1 small banana
35g oats
2 tbsp milled flaxseeds

You can add a little maple syrup if you like a slightly sweeter taste, then top up with almond milk and blend. I hope you like it!
