Lava Flow Smoothie Recipe

January 7th, 2019

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.
