Mixed Berry and Hemp Seed Smoothie (Banana Free)

mixed berry and hemp seed smoothie

I always keep a pack of frozen mixed berries (sometimes called "summer fruits") in my freezer as they're an affordable way of buying fruit and I find it useful to have them on hand to satisfy sweet cravings, or make a speedy dessert or smoothie. They feature as the star ingredient in today's smoothie, which I wanted to share as the perfect post-HIIT workout smoothie as I know lots of people have been taking part in online classes recently. The berries are a rich source of antioxidants, perfect for fighting free radicals and inflammation (the negatives associated with HIIT) whilst the hemp seeds add a source of protein as well as being rich in magnesium, essential for muscle function. It doesn't hurt that it's wonderfully refreshing and feels like an indulgent treat after that intense class too!
Top tip: This is a banana free smoothie but to make it nut free, simply replace with an alternative milk such as hemp seed.

Three great health benefits: good source of antioxidants, promotes healthy skin, boosts immunity

Serves 1

1 & 1/3 cup almond milk (I always use unsweetened)
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

1) Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
