Orange Mango And Walnut Smoothie

This recipe Is a creamy and delicious concoction of wonderful flavors. It is so sweet and delicious and so good for you. I simply love this smoothie. The mango and orange pair really well with the walnuts. The banana makes this smoothie so creamy and thick. It has protein from the hemp seeds and good healthy fats from the walnuts. It is has a subtle undertone of coconut which makes this smoothie irresistible. Trust me, You will be addicted to this smoothie when you try it.

INGREDIENTS:

1 mango ( peeled and chopped)

1 orange (peeled and seeded)

1 frozen banana (slightly thawed)

1 tbsp hemp seeds

1-2 tbsp maple syrup ( depending on how sweet you like your smoothie- I chose 1 tbsp)

1 cup or 200 ml of coconut water with the pulp

1/4 cup walnuts

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a blender add in the orange, mango, banana, hemp seeds, maple syrup, coconut water, and walnuts.
  2. Turn the blender on low to start the blending process. When the blending is going turn the blender up to med/high speed and blend until completely smooth. You will have flecks of hemp/walnuts in the smoothie.
  3. Pour into a glass or jar and add a straw and enjoy! 20180109_133315.jpg

You are going to love this smoothie. I make this smoothie whenever I have mango and oranges on hand. I take this to work with me and enjoy before/after a workout. I also like to put a little spinach in this as well to make it a little more nutritionally packed. The flavor of the spinach will not become too strong and the fruit will cancel out the flavor of the spinach. You can freeze your orange and mango overnight or use frozen mango along with the fresh orange to make this even colder. I like it either way. I often put in a few ice cubes as well.
