Energizing Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Smoothies can be a great way to get nutrients into your system fast in the morning before work or after a workout.  Not only that, you can create some that taste so good you will look forward to drinking them!  I like to add in a little raw protein powder to help rebuild muscle after a workout and keep me feeling full and satisfied until my next meal.  Some hempseeds are also a great add in to get your omega-3 oils.  This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie tastes like dessert, but packs a nutritional bang for your buck and will leave you energized.  Never let your busy life compromise your ability to fuel your body and feel good!

Combine all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth (if you do not have a high speed blender with a tamper, you may need to add a little more hemp milk to blend). pour into glasses and top with cacao nibs and goji berries.
