Mango and Hemp Seed Smoothie

Mango-and-Hemp-Seed-Smoothie

Here is a yummy Mango and Hemp Seed Smoothie which is part of my “Vibrant Health Superfood Smoothie Series” where I make smoothies using a few the many Vibrant Health products.

This one uses “Green Vibrance”, which is actually the very first Vibrant Health product I ever bought and fell in love with.

I’ve been using it for several years now and I can honestly say that I can definitely feel a difference when I use it and when I don’t!

I had some mango left over from my Vanilla Bean and Mango Chia Seed Pudding recipe I posted earlier, so I used it to whip up this yummy smoothie.

Where to Buy:  If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door, and you’ll be supporting The Healthy Family and Home website at the same time!

 

 

Tip #1:  I like to make my own homemade almond milk with my Vitamix to avoid the additives and processed boxed milk, but you can substitute it your favorite non-dairy (or dairy for non-vegan) milk.  I buy my raw, organic, unpasteurized, sproutable almonds in bulk from here.

Tip #2:  The organic almonds and organic mulberries for garnish are optional and added for extra nutrition.

Tip #3:  You can use fresh or frozen mango…I like to use frozen so I don’t have to add ice cubes.

Tip #4:  My goal when I make smoothies is to make them as nutritious as possible so mine are superfood heavy.  Don’t pass on trying this recipe because you don’t have all the ingredients listed.  Just use what you have and make adjustments/substitutions.  And since it’s really expensive to buy a lot of superfoods all at one time, just make a list of the ones you want and buy (1) new one each month.  You won’t use a lot at one time and they will last a while.

Tip #5:  This recipe will make (1) large smoothie.
