Protein Lab, a local smoothie and restaurant joint located on Imperial Highway, offers delicious and healthy treats for those looking to stay fueled throughout the day! The Lab was inspired by their own passion for well-balanced living and fitness to create a menu which encompasses this vision. Some of their menu items include their unforgettably delicious smoothies, bowls and shakes all which make for the perfect grab and go bites. The Lab is committed to “making every aspect of your experience second to none.”
The restaurant has a vast menu which can be customized for those with dietary restrictions. Protein Lab offers a great experience for those who enjoy an enticing smoothie selection. One of their most popular is the Warrior which consists of almond milk, spinach, agave, vanilla whey and not to mention it has almond butter mixed into it, therefore, making it a great option for all almond butter lovers. The Champion is another great option which I personally enjoy, it has chocolate whey, peanut butter, cookie crumbles and bananas resembling a tasty and indulging chocolate dessert. Some of their other fan favorites include the cinnamon toast cruncher, matcha man, fruity kettlebells and a peppermint mocha option, all of which provide healthy alternatives to popular snack foods.
For Acai bowl fanatics like myself, Protein Lab is a great place to get a refreshing tasty bowl. Their superfood bowls can be customized with a variety of add ons, some of which include chia seeds, cacao nibs, bee pollen as well as other fruit and spread options. It’s a great way for customers to include their personal favorites toppings! As an avid matcha and taro fan, I was so pleasantly surprised to see these flavors be incorporated into their bowls. Another popular bowl includes the Monster, which has almond milk and organic pitaya which is then topped with hemp granola, coconut, bananas and agave. For those looking for a classic acai bowl, the Hermosa has an acai blend and is topped with granola, cacao nibs, agave and peanut butter. Their bowls help to serve a full-size meal and are easily shareable for those looking to try one out or purchase one!
The Lab not only offers smoothies and bowls but offers a variety of other treats to enjoy! Cold brew, an iced matcha latte and pre- workout drinks are some quick beverages which you can purchase in addition to your smoothie or bowl. The Brozookie is another fan favorite which is composed of a warm vegan protein cookie topped with sugar free caramel and chocolate. Overall, Protein Lab offers an amazing experience for all healthy food connoisseurs. Customers have repeatedly expressed their appreciation for the kind staff and the aesthetic appeal of the interior restaurant which even includes a Kobe wall which all basketball fans LOVE!
