Creamy Strawberry Blueberry Protein Smoothie

1 Cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
2 oranges juiced
1 lemon juiced
Handful of greens
  (spinach, kale etc.)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 scoop protein powder (vanilla) - optional

I put my berries in the freezer the night before because i like my smoothie cold and it helps to not water it down with ice. Drop your berries, juice, greens and coconut milk into the blender. You can also add oats if you want more carbs but it's optional.  Blend it really well especially if you added the oats to make sure the texture is nice, and then after everything is blended well add the protein powder (the protein powder is also optional but I add it for the extra vitamins and protein). Please keep in mind If you do add protein you need to drink immediately or it will thicken up a lot. The first time I made it I had a little science experiment unfolding on my desk after about 10 minutes so I cut back to half a scoop and remembered not to forget it on my computer desk :{ smoothies are better chilly anyway.

I love this recipe because you can add or subtract from the basic blend to suit your needs. I usually make a batch with coconut milk and a little vanilla protein powder and pour my portion into a glass then my husband uses the other half and adds oats cream and a little more protein powder for a more hefty version because he is trying to gain while I (like most women) am trying to slim up.
You can also blend the basic version (berries, juice, greens, and coconut milk) and freeze it in an ice tray to use in the morning if you are in a hurry. Just get the smoothie cubes in the blender add coconut milk (or cream) oats, and a little protein powder (if wanted), blend, pour into a travel mug, and out the door you go.
