All nuts and seeds are chock-full of nutrients and healthy fats. Try this smoothie with any of your favourite nuts or seeds.

Why it’s good for you?

A protein-rich diet is not just essential for growing muscles but also for keeping your nails strong and your hair thick and shiny. Adding hemp protein powder to your morning smoothies is an easy and delicious way to incorporate the goodness of hemp in your daily diet. Hemp protein is packed with fibre, vitamins, minerals and 20 amino acids.Our hemp protein powder is a naturally raw product and is sugar free.

Bananas are full of potassium to stop muscle cramps and peanut butter is rich in vitamin E to help keep your skin looking great. Peanut butter is also an excellent source of B6 which helps with healthy brain function and improves the mood by assisting with efficient serotonin synthesis.

Raspberries are a great low-sugar berry option and are easy to stock up on and keep in the freezer. Add a Medjool date for sweetness rather than refined sugar, to keep your smoothie healthy and add some extra minerals and fibre. Maca powder is a great ingredient to add to your protein rich, pre-workout smoothies as it is high in copper, vitamin C and iron and it is known to greatly enhance mood and stamina.
