I added Super Smoothie Mix by Good Life Organic which contains hemp seed powder, wheat grass powder and rosehip shell powder. It is 100 percent organic, vegan and contains no genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). How could you resist Hemp powder is plant-based protein. It contains essential fatty acids (EFA’s) omega 3 and omega 6. It is an abundant source of the eight amino acids essential for a healthy body. Hemp powder is gluten-free, high in fibre and contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus potassium, copper, boron, iron, zinc, manganese and chlorophyll. Wheatgrass is a super food bursting with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, proteins and amino acids. It is a powerful detoxifier, liver and blood protector. Rosehip contains vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and lycopene.
In addition to the Super Smoothie Mix, I added almond milk to give it a creamy texture and boost the calcium content. Carob is used as a chocolate alternative which adds a fantastic flavour to the smoothie. I use stevia to sweeten it up. Stevia is a natural alternative to sugar. Strawberries are nutrient rich and packed with antioxidants like vitamin C. Chia seeds add protein and these little gems help boost your digestive health.
