This smoothie is full of great ingredients and is absolutely delicious. Perfect for a post workout recovery beverage or really any time.
The pretty pink colour is nice to look at as well 🙂
Here are a few benefits of some of the superstar key ingredients in this Smoothie:

1/2 c frozen wild blueberries
1/4 c raw shelled hemp seeds
1/2 Lemon, juice of
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour into your glass of choice and serve immediately.
I hope you enjoy this delicious recovery smoothie. You can also substitute hemp seeds for a scoop of your favourite protein powder if you don’t have them on hand!
YUM. This was sooooo good and so easy! It also made quite a large batch so I even have some leftover! Woo hoo! Just 4 ingredients too!
You will need a food processor to create this delicious icecream. I have tried it in a blender and a it was a little tricky, but can be done a little at a time. Just takes patience-which I was lacking last night haha
1 c plain lactose free greek yogurt
2 frozen bananas, broken into small chunks
2 c frozen mango
1 c frozen pineapple
Sorry I didn’t take any pictures while I was making it or of the ingredients! I was just too excited and forgot all about the process. I am sure there will be a next time…and another next time after there 🙂
ADD YOGURT AND BANANA TO THE FOOD PROCESSOR AND PULSE UNTIL SMOOTH AND CREAMY.
SLOWLY ADD THE OTHER FRUIT A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME.
YOU MAY NEED TO REMOVE SOME FINISHED PRODUCT FROM THE PROCESSOR BEFORE STARTING A NEW BATCH.
I DID THIS AND MIXED IT ALL TOGETHER IN MY FREEZER CONTAINER AFTERWARDS.
ONCE ALL WELL BLENDED, ADD TO A FREEZER SAFE COVERED CONTAINER AND LET SIT IN THE FREEZER FOR 1.5 HOURS.
YOU CAN ALSO GOBBLE IT UP AS SUPER SOFT SERVE IMMEDIATELY IF YOU REALLY CAN’T WAIT 😉
I hope you enjoy! We sure did…and went back for seconds…oops!
