I love smoothies in the morning.  And more important, my stomach prefers smoothies in the morning.  A great smoothy is tasty and filling but also packs a healthy punch of nutritional goodness.

 

The black mamba packs a powerful sweetness for a green based smoothy. The subtle chocolate flavor keeps you coming back for more.  The coconut milk feels like a rich indulgence.

 

Need more protein in your morning routine?  Just add a scoop of your favorite protein powder and remove one banana.

 

My favorite part of the Black Mamba, well these smiles say it all.  Make this and Enjoy it today with someone you love.
