Mango banana smoothie benefits
The addition of hemp seeds to this smoothie provides a plant-based protein source for vegans and vegetarians. I love adding hemp seeds to my smoothies as they are a true superfood.
Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids along with the essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. The essential amino acids and fatty acids must be consumed dietarily, as the body cannot make these.
Adding hemp seeds to smoothies is such a great way to get these essential amino acids and fatty acids.
Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, which is an essential electrolyte required for optimal hydration. Adding bananas to smoothies is the best way to make a creamy yet filling smoothie. The resistant starches found in bananas also provide fiber for gut health.
The addition of coconut cream makes the best vegan mango banana smoothie that is creamy and satisfying. Coconut cream also slows down the absorption of sugar and provides extra calories for longer-lasting energy.
Mangoes are an excellent source of vitamin C required for collagen production to prevent wrinkles, is a antioxidant and supports a healthy immune system.
