The weather is nice, and all I want lately is something cold and sweet! I just finished a tough workout, and on my way home from the gym (starving as always) I was thinking of what to make. Something with fruit (after workout and in the morning is the best time to consume fruit because they are simple carbs and refuel muscle glycogen stores), and something with protein to get to the muscle cells quickly... Mmmm a smoothie! Better yet, the best smoothie ever!! I got all the ingredients that sounded refreshing, threw them together and in result ended up with MAGIC! This protein smoothie is so yummy you wouldn't even know it is health in a cup!

1/2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
6-8 ice cubes
1. In blender add ice, coconut water, Nu Tek Pro 5 vanilla Nutrishop protein, fruit, and coconut flakes.

Did I mention that this is good anytime of the day? Breakfast smoothie, mid-day snack, dessert, or post workout treat!
