- 1 tbsp flax seed(ground)
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 c water (or 100% juice of choice)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 servings of Protocol protein isolate whey powder
Instructions: In a blender, combine the frozen mixed fruit with the liquid (liquid should just clear the frozen fruit). Blend until fruit is pureed. Add the cinnamon and protein powder until well blended. *To achieve personal preference, use more/less equally distributed liquid to the frozen berries.
