I usually start my mornings with a big green smoothie, so I’m loving the new Superfood Smoothies book, by Julie Morris and LOVED this recipe! While thumbing through her book, their were several recipes with ingredients I don’t usually have on hand, and hemp seeds was one of them. But I’ve been curious about them, because I was looking for more ways to add protein to my smoothies without using yogurt, so off to the health food store I went to pick some up.

Start the morning RIGHT with this super delicious, creamy green smoothie made with frozen banana, baby spinach, fresh mango, hemp seeds and almond milk.

Guess what, they are really DELICIOUS, similar to the taste of raw sunflower seeds. They are one of the best sources of protein on the planet according to Julie, and include all 8 essential amino acids. The recipe below is for two, but if your making this for yourself, just divide the recipe. Be sure to freeze your bananas so your smoothie is thick, almost like the texture of a milkshake.

If you’re wondering where to find raw shelled hemp seeds, I’ve seen them at Costco, my local Organic Supermarket, the health food aisle of my supermarket, or you can order them on Amazon. Be sure they are shelled and unsalted. Of course if you wish you can sub them out for another seed such as sunflower or flax.

This will be on my regular rotation from now on, and I love that it’s 4 points plus on Weight Watchers for 16 oz, plus it’s perfect for dairy-free, clean, vegetarian, gluten-free, and Paleo-friendly.

  1. What are those amazon links in the ingredients link. Nothing will open. Can u please just list the ingredient and quantity. Thank you

  2. I used peach instead of mango because I had it on hand. Amazingly delicious recipe!

  3. Would frozen mango work?

  4. Would hearts of romaine be okay to add to this if you don't have spinach? What about greek yogurt instead of almond milk?

  5. Assuming Kale could be substituted for the spinach and frozen mangoes

  6. Do you prefer the Vitamix or Blendtec? I saw a recent post about a new Vitamix, and see the Blendtec here. Thanks.

  7. I made this for breakfast but with chia seeds (what I had on hand) and only a little spinach, as I was running low. It was so delicious! Even better than I thought it would be. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  8. Loving your blog for the information I need. My son has MS so I am trying to get the best and affordable nutrition in him as best as I can.
    thank you for all of your hard work. I am promoting your blog on skinny Scoop. Hope you don't mind.

  9. Wow! I just tried this, and it's the first green smoothie I've ever tried. I've always been extremely sceptic to green smoothies… I mean… Spinach? In a smoothie? But this was SO good, you really can't taste the spinach! Thanks!

  10. This is an awesome smoothie! I made it with chia instead of hemp (although I also love hemp!). I omitted the sweetener. Yum! Thanks!

  11. I tried this smoothie after my morning run today and it was instant LOVE. This is one hell of a delicious smoothie 🙂 Thank you for posting it!! xox

  12. I love mangos. The ones with the yellow skin are even better than the ones with the green/red skin. Sweeter. I didn't have any banana left in the house, so I made my smoothie this morning with the mango and a little of the frozen mixed fruit I have in my freezer (strawberry, mango, pineapple). I don't have hemp seeds so I ground a tablespoon of flax seed & added it in. It's really good! Thanks for the idea, Gina!

  13. How do you prepare your bananas when you freeze them?

    • I peel the banana and slice it. Then put the slices in a baggie and freeze. If I don't get to them (within a month) then they turn brown. Probably still good, but I find it unappetizing and toss.

  14. I love the range of recipes you have and so far the mango banana green smoothie has been my favourite. I would never have thought to use hemp seeds but not only were they tasty but they’re a great way to add protein and fibre. Usually I would use Chai seeds but I find them to be quite hard and sharp in texture so this is a great alternative.

    I also love that you have categorised each recipe based on Weight Watchers Points Plus. As a user of Weight Watchers, this allows me to ensure I do not go over the number of points I should be consuming per day.

  15. Anyone ever done this in a magic bullet? Does it work ok?

  16. I'm a big fan of hemp protein powder for smoothies. I buy a kind called Hemp Pro 70 made by a company called Manitoba Farms. My go-to breakfast smoothie lately has been a banana, some frozen fruit (usually strawberries and peaches), skim milk, a few tablespoons of protein powder, and two teaspoons of ground flax seeds.

  17. Gina, how do you feel about using coconut milk in place of the almond milk? I found out in October 2012 (at 34 years old!!!) that I am allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and (severely) chocolate. I have coconut milk in the fridge though. That is what I use to make my daily smoothies.

  18. Drinking this as I type. So creamy and yummy and pretty and… CRAP IT'S ALL GONE! Oh nooooooooooooooo!

    • I went ahead and bought the Superfood Smoothies book. It is so beautiful and the recipes all sound amazing. Great purchase, thanks for posting about it Gina!

  19. Love this recipe! I'm a green smoothies advocate, I make them for my husband and I every morning! i'll have to check out this book too.

  20. I think i'm addidicted to these. It was so good. I've had one the last two mornings. One thing that I wish I would have known, peel the bananas before you freeze them. LOL
