This tropical ginger hemp seed smoothie is easy to throw together, portable, delicious and filled with plant-based protein.
Ingredients
  • 1 banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 handful of leafy greens, I used a mix of spinach and kale
  • 1 cup frozen tropical fruit, I used a mix of pineapple and mango
  • 1 knob of ginger about an inch thick
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 - 2 tbsp coconut butter, plus more for drizzling
  • juice of half a lime
  • ¼ - ½ cup almond or coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender, starting with ¼ cup milk and process until smooth
  2. Add more milk and continue to process until desired consistency is reached
  3. Pour into a glass* and top with more coconut butter and/or hemp seeds as desired
Notes
* I drizzled some melted coconut butter around the inside of my glass immediately before pouring the smoothie in to get the layered effect seen in the photos
