Wait! What Does Jessica Alba Drink Before Working Out?!

Actress Jessica Alba is making headlines lately and it is not only for movies. We see her working hard from opening her brand Honest Beauty alongside her company Honest Company that is cruelty free to being completely *honest* in her food selections as well.

  In a article by Shape Magazine, the beautiful actress  answers some questions while working with ZICO Coconut Water’s “What’s Inside Everything’ campaign”. Jessica explains her choices for the mornings and how smoothies are perfect to get the energy needed to work up a sweat. She always has time to whip up her own pre and post workout smoothies and enjoys it over ice.

Check out below to see which smoothie Jessica Alba goes to before and after working out!

Jessica Alba’s Pre-Workout Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

Jessica is all about adding matcha to her morning smoothie before heading to spin class for a caffeine boost (without the acidity of coffee).  She also explains that she prefers plant-based vanilla protein powder because whey tends to give her a stomach ache.

Ingredients

ZICO Natural 100% coconut water

1 banana

1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder

1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

Ice

Instructions

Blend ingredients until smooth and serve over ice.

Jessica Alba’s Post-Workout Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Her favorite post-workout “peanut butter cup” smoothie uses Zico’s chocolate coconut water, which Jessica describes as “like a Yoohoo but  healthier, because it has electrolytes.” Sold. While it’s her daughter Honor’s favorite sans the protein powder, Jessica shares that she adds a bit of plant-based protein for herself post-workout to refuel, along with the electrolytes from the coconut water.

Ingredients

ZICO Chocolate Coconut Water

1-2 tablespoons almond butter

1 banana

Handful of granola (optional for added texture)

1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

Instructions

Blend ingredients until smooth and serve over ice.
