Need a smoothie with staying power? Lookie right here, because I’ve got a tasty one for ya with just 5 nutrient dense, whole food ingredients.
Vitamin packed chunks of mango
Creamy avocado filled with healthy fats
A dash of raw honey
Nutty homemade cashew milk
…and super power hemp seeds!
Uh, YUM!! This mango avocado smoothie is packed with 14 grams of protein without using protein powder. I’m not protein powder averse, but that stuff’s expensive so I only reach for it when I really need to (like, um, a protein packed almond butter chocolate shake? Hells yes).
The staying power magic here? Hemp seeds.
Hemp seeds don’t have much of a flavor profile, but they do pack a punch of nutrition and are pleasantly crunchy when consumed raw in salads or added into granola or snack bars.
Hemps seeds are a super food. One serving (about 3 tablespoons) gives you 15 grams of healthy fats (12 are poly and mono-unsaturated, AKA the very best fats), 10 grams of protein, and significant punches of vital micronutrients. Read more about the nutritional benefits of hemp seeds here.
I buy the the Manitoba Harvest brand from my local co-op, and my chain grocery store carries them too, so they’re widely available (and pretty cheap, as far as plant based protein goes).
Avocado brings more healthy fats to this delicious drink, plus all the creaminess you crave in a smoothie without a drop of dairy. Hello easy paleo breakfast! A handful of fresh or frozen mango and a touch of raw honey make it sweet, but not overly so, while also supplying a full serving of Vitamin C.
This mango avocado smoothie blends up easy peasy in any ol’ blender – no fancy equipment needed. Add a splash of cashew milk (or your favorite nut milk) to get things moving. Feel free to supplement with a handful of spinach or kale if you want a greener experience.
This smoothie is both calorie and protein dense, with tons of super healthy fats, so it’ll fill you up and keep you full from breakfast through lunch, or as a post workout snack. And since it only requires five easy ingredients and five minutes, you’ve got no excuses to sip this superfood smoothie ASAP!
