There’s nothing like a cool drink after your morning vinyasa flow. But a cool drink that’s also loaded with protein, pre-biotics, healthy fats, and antioxidants? That’s even better. Whether it’s pre or post-workout, this combination of chia seeds, yogurt, almond milk, fruit, and grass-fed protein powder creates a sweet and nourishing concoction that gives you an added boost of energy.
While we’re all familiar with a strawberry smoothie, this drink takes it to the next level. Coconut oil and siggi’s coconut yogurt add a bright, tropical flavor, and the hefty dose of omega-3s provide nourishing healthy fats. Omega-3s are best known for their abilities to aid in the fight against inflammation, lower of levels of depression, and aid in heart health. And if tastes good, what’s to lose?

1 container yogurt (siggi’s coconut yogurt recommended)
1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cups frozen organic strawberries
1 scoop grass fed whey protein powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp coconut oil
Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth.1
