Banana, Hemp and Strawberry Smoothie (vegan + GF)

Don't drink smoothies in the winter? You're missing out. They may not be warm, but smoothies are packed so full of goodness that they deliver a nutritional punch. Take this banana, hemp and strawberry smoothie for example: strawberries are full of vitamin C, which is great in the winter; I've avoided using green vegetables in the recipe so it isn't too cooling for the body; and I've added in lots of fat in the form of shredded coconut and hemp seeds to fuel you in the cooler months! Finally, I've found adding a dash of cinnamon really helps the smoothie feel warming and energizing. And lets be honest, it makes it a little bit festive - who doesn't love festive?

This banana, hemp and strawberry smoothie is great for breakfast or as a snack at any time of day. I also like adding a scoop of plant-based protein powder to give it an extra kick of energy. Other top recommendations for warming ingredients to include in this one are (all optional): maca, lucuma, cacao powder or nibs, ginger powder and vanilla powder or essence.

That said, if you prefer a greener smoothie for breakfast or as a snack, I can totally understand! Try the recipe for this Everyday Breakfast Smoothie instead. It's packed full of mango and spinach, and is a refreshing alternative to this Banana, Hemp and Strawberry Smoothie. Happy blending!
