Blueberry, Pomegranate and Hemp Seed Smoothie

Blueberry, Pomegranate and Hemp Seed Smoothie

The blueberry, pomegranate, and hemp seed smoothie is my new favourite smoothie! I know, I know, I say that every time I make a new one of these. And truth be told, I will probably keep saying that each and every time. That’s because I am always impressed by how wonderful our natural ingredients can blend together to create exciting and interesting flavours.

This week I went on a bit of a smoothie making trip, and once I go down that road, there is no turning back. I might be a little obsessed (okay maybe more than just a bit) but everyone benefits from it, so I see it as a win! The only thing that stopped me was my blender went “missing” – the team here at vegan.io had something to do with it, I’m sure. There is no need to panic though, I did create some more amazing smoothie recipes and I’m super excited to share them with you.

Be sure to head over and check out the dark grape, peach, and lemon smoothie when you’re done here. 

So let’s take a look at why you need this smoothie to on your favourites list as well.

To make this recipe, you will need 4 fresh and wonderful ingredients and 5 minutes. Yes, it really is that easy! 

Each and every one of the ingredients in this recipe are all equally important for daily nutrition. First, we have blueberries and pomegranate. Both of these combined offer us a great source of vitamin C, fibre, vitamin K, and of course, antioxidants! 

We also have hemp seeds and banana in this smoothie, providing a high source of potassium, magnesium, protein, vitamin E, and ‘healthy fats.’ And that’s just to name a few! 

All of these amazing nutritional benefits is one of the main reasons why I love smoothies so much! Do you love them too? 

The blueberry, pomegranate, and hemp seed smoothie is perfect for breakfast or a snack because it’s:

  • Sooooo easy to make.
  • Packed full of essential vitamins and minerals.
  • A good source of protein – 14g per serve.
  • Full of amazing antioxidants.
  • A family favourite!

I always suggest that you consume your smoothies soon after making them for the best taste. However, if you do need to store them for a short period of time, you can pop it in an airtight container in the fridge. I personally love using a travel mug (or cup with a lid) if I’m going to drink my smoothies on the go.

I hope you enjoy this smoothie recipe as much as I love making it (and drinking it of course). Please remember to let us know if you tried it, we love seeing your pictures and hearing your comments.
