This energizing strawberry mango smoothie makes the perfect healthy breakfast, or an afternoon snack when you need a midday day energy boost.

Ingredients: -frozen strawberries -frozen mango -half a frozen banana -macadamia nuts -milk (I used almond milk) -protein powder or supplements of choice (optional)

I added energizing NAKED Reds to my smoothie to combat the afternoon energy slump.

I used my NutriBullet for this smoothie because it was convenient to use a separate blending cup for each of the two different layers, but any high-speed blender will work.

The bottom layer contains frozen chunks of sweet mango, macadamia nuts, and unsweetened almond milk.

The top layer is a strawberry banana smoothie made from frozen strawberries, banana, and a little more chilled almond milk.

The result is a delicious smoothie with all-natural fruity flavors that is designed to help reduce afternoon sluggishness. Count me IN.

Plus, just look how pretty it is!  It's creamy, and fruity, and the perfect nutritious energy boost!

Typically, I head for another cup of coffee when I start to slow down in afternoon, but...

...a smoothie filled with fresh ingredients & energizing NAKED Reds is the best way to get a boost without caffeine.
