Makes 2 servings

2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1 cup of fresh strawberries
1-2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
2 heaping tbsps of almond butter
1 or 2 dates -- optional depending on how sweet you like it (Dates will give smoothies a sweet caramel flavor and help to strengthen muscles.)
1 cup of filtered ice or frozen blueberries

Put all ingredients into a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Notes: Use berries from the farmers' market when possible for better flavor. You can use frozen strawberries and blueberries if you don't have fresh.
