Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie!

Who can say no to strawberry shortcake? 

This smoothie is great in the sense that is tastes incredible and is also good for you! The strawberries pack a huge antioxidant punch to strengthen your immune system, and the dates help clear up any digestive issues you may suffer from. The coconut water replenishes crucial electrolytes we lose throughout the day, and the maca powder helps regulate hormones, reduces anxiety and stress and increases libido. The vanilla is also a potent antioxidant as well as helps calm and release any built up tension you may be experiencing. 

This smoothie is entirely plant-based and tastes very similar to strawberry shortcake! It is creamy and just sweet enough, with cakey overtones of vanilla and coconut!
