If you’ve been following my daily posts on post-workout drinks, you know that I’m a huge fan of the pre-workouts drink.
I’m also a big fan of some of the other pre- and post- workouts drinks that I use, but none of them really caught my eye until I read the article below by the DrinkBuddies team.
They’ve put together a list of pre- workouts drinks, and the DrinkBrewers have compiled a list, too.
The DrinkBrewer team recommends the following pre- workouts drink for every level of athlete: Tamarindos: DrinkOne (available at Walmart and online) is a sweet, savory concoction that has a light maltiness and coconut milk.
The drink contains coconut milk and caramel syrup.
Tacos: Caviar and coconut sugar add a creamy texture to the drink.
I usually add some coconut milk to the cocktail, but it’s optional.
Lemonade: A light, fruity cocktail made from crushed pineapple, lime juice, lemon, and ice cubes.
It’s also a great way to kick-start the day.
Ice Cakes: This is a refreshing concoction made with chilled coconut water, whipped cream, ice cream, and sugar.
Dessert: Make it yourself: The recipe below is for a cocktail, so you can add your own twists on the ingredients.
You can use a lemonade base and sweetened coconut milk as the base, or use the lemonade and coconut syrup as the flavor.

Drinks for pre- workout: The following pre workout drinks are perfect for a post-run shake: SodaStream®: I always like to add a splash of the refreshing drink to my pre-race drink.
