My Super Smoothie Recipe

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup frozen mangos
1/2 banana
1/2 cup or 1 cup (depending how thick you want your smoothie) of almond milk
1 tbsp aloe vera juice (very good for the skin)
1 tbsp of chia seeds (soaked in water first, preferably overnight)
1 tsp maca mix (maca x-6, black and red-purple maca) powder
1 tsp protein powder (I use Sun Warrior, which is vegan and gluten-free)
1 scoop of Daily Greens powder
Toss into a blender and blend. Pour into a glass or to-go cup and enjoy ; )

Now that I'm eating all healthy and stuff, I've been drinking this super smoothie every morning for the past couple of weeks now. I take it to work in a to-go cup. I find it's a great and easy way to start my day because all the vitamins and nutrients in the smoothie give me a ton of energy! It's also chock full of anti-oxidants. I know the liquid kind of looks like something you'd find in a baby's diaper but believe me, it tastes great!! I gave you the average measurements I use, but feel free to play around with how much of each ingredient you put in, I don't put too much protein powder in my smoothies because I find if I do it starts to taste funny. You can purchase the powders at healthy food stores, I bought most of them from Planet Organic which I seem to visit quite frequently now. Do you make smoothies at home? I'd love to hear what you put in them!
