This smoothie is jam packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients. I added “Super Smoothie Mix by Good Life Organic”; it contains hemp seed powder, wheatgrass powder and rosehip shell powder. It is 100% organic, vegan and contains no genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). How could you resist? This is great as a mid-morning or late afternoon snack.
Hemp powder is plant-based protein. It contains essential fatty acids (EFA’s) omega 3 and omega 6. It is an abundant source of the eight amino acids essential for a healthy body. Hemp powder is gluten-free, high in fibre and contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus potassium, copper, boron, iron, zinc, manganese and chlorophyll. Wheatgrass is a superfood bursting with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, proteins and amino acids. It is a powerful detoxifier, liver and blood protector. Rosehip contains vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and lycopene.
In addition to the “Super Smoothie Mix”, I added almond milk to give it a creamy texture and boost the calcium content. Carob is used as a chocolate alternative which adds a fantastic flavour to the smoothie. I use stevia to sweeten it up. Stevia is a natural alternative to sugar. Strawberries are nutrient rich and packed with antioxidants like vitamin C. Chia seeds add protein and these little gems help boost your digestive health.
