#1 Smoothie: if you’re hopelessly in love
If you’re searching for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for you and that special person in your life, then search no more. What could be better than delicious freshness in a glass?
It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that the most popular smoothie flavor is strawberry. This sexy and delicious fruit is an excellent source of vitamins C and K, and provides a useful dose of fiber too. Roughly 21% of consumers prefer strawberry flavor, followed by other berries such as blueberries, and cranberries.
1 ½ cup almond milk or coconut milk;
1 ripe banana;
1 cup frozen berries;
All you need to do now is add the almond milk, frozen fruits, and banana to your blender. Blend until you reach your desired consistency. Add more fruit to thicken or add more milk to thin it out. Customize your drink by adding your favorite toppings such as bits of fruits or nuts and whipped cream.

All you need is:
1 cup mango;

2 teaspoons granulated activated charcoal;
1/2 cup of coconut water;
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. As trivial as this may sound, don’t forget to put the lid on, otherwise, you’ll end up having a blackout and not just a black smoothie.
