Since it's summer, I've been drinking smoothies almost everyday either for breakfast or a snack.
This is one of my favorites!
The collagen powder promotes healthy joints and glowing skin, mango promotes firm, clear and bright skin and flax seeds add extra fiber for digestion.
Maca powder is a natural source of energy, iron and helps memory--It's especially helpful for relieving symptoms like fatigue, mood swings, and pain during that time of the month. I take this 3-4 times a week in smoothies.

2/3 cups non dairy milk (I used unsweetened vanilla hemp milk)
1/3 cup pure mango juice or orange juice
2/3 cups frozen banana, strawberries, raspberries and black berries
1/2 of a large ripe mango
1 serving of Vital Proteins Collagen Powder (I get mine from Target or Sprouts, here's the link)
1 tbs ground or whole flaxseeds
1 tsp maca powder, I use Sprout's Brand of Raw Organic Maca Powder
Small handful of ice
Add all the ingredients into the blender and blend until the consistency is smooth and thick.
