This is our dietitian-approved Green Smoothie with Hemp protein. We blend together banana, spinach, pineapple, and hemp hearts to make a power-packed smoothie. Oftentimes, we see people making green smoothies (or juices) which probably aren’t the most filling. By adding more than just vegetables to this smoothie, it becomes more nourishing and will leave you more satisfied.
One of the best parts of this smoothie, in my opinion, is the addition of hemp hearts! What are hemp hearts, you ask? Well, they’re the inside of hemp seeds! They provide plenty of healthy fats – specifically omega-3s and omega-6s. Not only do they provide you with those fats, but they’re also a good source of protein!
So now you have two of the most important components of making a satisfying meal or snack. You also need carbs and fiber. Lucky for you, we managed to fit both of those in this smoothie! Spinach and cauliflower are both great sources of fiber, in addition to their many vitamins and minerals. All vegetables and fruits have some carbs in them, so that’s also covered in this green smoothie! You have a completely balanced meal or snack!
Looking for more satisfying smoothie recipes? Check these out:
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 banana frozen
- 1/2 cup pineapple frozen
- 1/2 cup cauliflower rice frozen
- 3 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1/2 cup water or desired liquid
- Combine all of the ingredients in the pitcher of a high-powdered blender. Blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Enjoy!
- If desired, make it into a smoothie bowl! Use less water to keep it thick, and top with fresh or freeze-dried fruit, chia seeds, bee pollen, chopped nuts, etc.
