Looking for a nutritious quick smoothie?
Here’s a quick and delicious smoothie that takes less than 10 minutes to make: introducing the Hemp Berry Smoothie!
To be honest, I made this smoothie by just throwing in the ingredients that I had in my fridge – and it still made a delish drink!
The only ingredients you need for this smoothie are:
- 1 apple
- 1 cup hemp milk
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 avocado
- 1 tsp spirulina
- 1 cup parsley
- Handful of Goji Berries
- 4 ice cubes
Toss the ingredients together in a blender:
If you’re looking for the nutritional benefits of the smoothie, keep in mind that these are all nutrient dense and low calorie foods, and deliver the following benefits:
Hailed as the new superfood, this Himalayan berry helps treat diabetes, hypertension, malaria, and much more. It has more vitamin C than orange and more beta-carotene than carrots!
A vegan product that blends hemp seeds and water, hemp milk is rich in omega 3, and it also strengthens the immune system, improves circulation and helps provide clear skin and a strong heart! Dr. Oz calls it his new fav milk alternative 🙂
It’s been used since 10,000 B.C. and provides nearly 20 essential nutrients, including omega 3’s, Vitamin E and Lutein (which protects against cancer). Don’t be afraid of their healthy fats – they’re the “monounsaturated fats” which are healthy fats that lower cholesterol and control diabetes.
Read my entire article here on Spirulina’s benefits, but it is high in bio-available iron, chlorophyll, B vitamins, a strong antioxidant, increases good cholesterol, and helps to protect your liver!
Parsley is a nutritional powerhouse with vitamins A,B,C, and K and the minerals iron and potassium. It’s great for detoxifying your body and helps boost your immunity!
