VeganMoFo 2015 – Day 11: Focus on a nutrient.
This super delicious smoothie is jam packed with hemp protein powder, frozen mango, frozen pineapple, frozen banana, coconut milk, dates and a little beetroot juice (just to add a little colour).
Hemp protein, made from the hemp seed, is a high-fiber protein supplement that can be used to enhance total protein intake for vegans and non-vegans alike. Hemp can be considered a superior protein source due to its above-average digestibility, which also makes it ideal for athletes. Additional benefits of hemp protein include potential immune enhancing and anti-fatigue properties, as well as kidney-protective effects.
