Get Your Healthy On
Kiwi, or sometimes called Kiwifruit, is a super healthy fruit. It has more vitamin C than the same amount of oranges. It also boasts vitamin K, fiber, vitamin E, potassium, and folate. And it only has 42 calories per piece of fruit.
Mangos contain vitamin C, vitamin A, B vitamins, fiber, and potassium.
What are Hemp Seeds?
This Mango Kiwi Smoothie also features hemp hearts, which are shelled hemp seeds. They come from a plant in the Cannibus family, but it is different than the marijuana plant that is also part of the cannibus family. So, no need to worry about passing that random drug test at work or feeding them to children. They are healthy and nutritious and you should be eating them!
They are super high in easily digestible protein (and are considered a complete protein!) and omega-3 essential fatty acids. You will also find iron, Vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 and omega-6 are the good fats! And hemp seeds are naturally gluten free. A few tablespoons goes a long way. Store them in the fridge in an airtight container.
Give your immune system a boost with this creamy, antioxidant rich smoothie!
Interesting fact: I’m allergic to fresh mango. There is something about the oils in the skins. I have read that if you are allergic to poison ivy, which I am, there is a good possibility you will be allergic to the oil in mango skins too. They are somehow related. If only I had read that before I found out I was allergic to mango…I probably would have been more careful. Dried mango is hit or miss, so I just skip it nowadays. The good news is that I’m okay eating frozen mango…thus this smoothie! 🙂 So, if you have a mango allergy reaction too, you may be able to consume frozen mango safely with no symptoms, but always consult your doctor if you have concerns.
