Cinnamon Coffee Breakfast Smoothie (Hot or Cold)

What better way than to wake up than with a sweet, creamy coffee with 30g of plantbased protein? Not only is this also great for an anytime pick-me-up but it also comes in handy as a postworkout recovery shake as well.Β And if you’re tired of cold smoothies in these chilly months of autumn, heat your plant milk first for a warm decadent treat.
