Energizing Green Smoothie
This smoothie is one of my favorite Fundamental5 smoothies as it’s nutrient-dense and a great way to get your greens first thing in the morning. Hemp seeds are rich in protein, fiber and fatty acids, so I love adding them to smoothies as another great source of protein.
1 cup unsweetened flax milk (or your choice)
1 heaped tsp almond butter (or your favorite nut butter)
½ frozen banana
chopped ¼ avocado
2 large handfuls of baby spinach (or your favorite greens)
1 tsp maca powder
¼ cup ice
1 date, pitted (or monkfruit/Stevia for sugarfree)
2 tbsp hemp seeds
Toppings for crunch and chew:
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 Tsp. Raw unsweetened cacao nibs
- Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender for 50 seconds, or until spinach is completely blended.
- Top with hemp seeds and enjoy!
