This is my favorite protein smoothie - it gets me through until lunch with nice, clean energy.
1/2 cup frozen mangoes
4-5 frozen strawberries
whole frozen banana
2-3 coconut milk ice cubes (pour coconut milk into an ice tray and freeze over night - makes it extra creamy)
1-2 heaping tablespoons of BE STRONG protein smoothie mix
1 teaspoon BE SMOOTH cacao smoothie mix
1 cup almond milk kefir* or coconut water or a mix of the two.
1/2 avocado (makes it creamy and OH SO DELICIOUS)
Put all ingredients (liquid first) in blender. Blend until smooth. This is a thick smoothie - if you want to make it thinner add more liquid. P.S.
** I make almond milk kefir (almond milk yogurt, basically) by 1. soaking raw almonds 24-48 hours. Rinse. Blend on high for 2 minutes with clean water (as much as my blender will hold). Then add 2-3 capsules of probiotics, stir gently. Leave on counter with paper towel for 12 hours. Cover and refrigerate This way I get my probiotics!

This is my go to smoothie in the morning because it gives me lasting energy, is satisfying, and just puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day. You've got your green foods (spirulina), your protein (hemp, mesquite), and maca, great for balancing hormones and doing whatever it is your body needs!
2 tbsp Be Smooth (cacao, spirulina, and maca)
1 tbsp Be Strong (hemp protein, mesquite, cacao)
2 medjool dates, pitted (you can substitute a bit of agave, stevia, or coconut palm sugar)
1 small frozen banana or half large banana (freeze over night)
1 cup frozen coconut milk (put in ice cube trays and freeze overnight)
1 and 1/2 cup hemp milk (you can also do coconut water)
Blend ingredients in a fast speed blender.
