There’s an easy way to get into your morning flow, and it doesn’t involve hiking up an active volcano at dawn. Just head to the kitchen and blend up a tropical-inspired coconut smoothie base (with 20g of protein per serving!), then swirl a sweet strawberry sauce over the top. To help with morning prep, freeze the fruit overnight so it’s ready when you are.
