Green Smoothie Of The Day: Mango, Strawberry, and Hemp

When I make green fruit smoothies, I like to add a healthy fat source.

Today, it was hemp hearts.

What so great about hemp?

Hemp seeds have high levels of vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene and are rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals and fiber. It’s also a good source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. They are delicious, easy to prepare, and can be added to many of your favorite foods.

To increase the protein of my smoothies, I add a scoop of vanilla Nuzest Protein Powder (vegan). Today’s smoothie is LOW in sugar (hard with fruit smoothies), high in protein, and low fat.


1/3 cup frozen mangos

1/3 cup frozen strawberries

2 cups of spinach (or kale)

10 oz of water

Little ice

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

1-1/2 TBS hemp hearts


Blend all ingredients together.
