This smoothie is high in fat so I'll give you a lower fat version too.
1/4 cup of coconut milk
1 1/2 bananas
1 cup of tropical fruit mix
2 tbsp of peanut butter
2.5 tbsp of cacao powder
1 serving of tofu (for protein)
Filtered water

Blend everything on high. Add the filtered water to thin out the smoothies. Top with fresh berries or goji berries.
Lower fat version: use other non dairy milk besides coconut milk. Eliminate the peanut butter.
Soy free? Use chocolate protein powder instead of tofu.
Enjoy!!
