This healthy mango pineapple smoothie sings with tropical fruit flavours. Oats and hemp seeds will help to keep you full while you get on with your day.
Why make this recipe.
This juicy little breakfast smoothie brings a glass full of sunshine into my mornings!
Add coconut water and a paper umbrella for a gorgeous twist and imagine you’re on holiday. (It’s equally good on a Saturday night if your sweet tooth is asking for more.)
Including the oats and shelled hemp seeds helps make this smoothie really satiating. I added these as this smoothie has a lot of natural sugars from the fruit.
The natural sweetness in this recipe means there’s no need for added sugars.
For a colder smoothie use frozen mango, pineapple and/or frozen banana.
What you’ll need.
To make this healthy mango pineapple smoothie you will need the following ingredients:
Mangoes and pineapples are both a great source of vitamin C while also containing many other nutrients essential to health and our immune system.
Bananas are available all year round in the UK and are a brilliant way to add goodness and thickness to smoothies. Full of potassium, vitamin C, fibre and many other nutrients.
I like to freeze a whole bunch of chopped bananas each week for use in smoothies and nice cream.
The sweetest bananas are the ripest. You can tell if a banana is ripe because they start to show brown speckles on their yellow skins.
Hemp seeds are a great source of healthy vegan protein while including some omega-3’s to help see you through the morning. You can swap the hemp seeds with flax seeds easily without really altering the flavour of this recipe.
Oats are a source of iron, magnesium and zinc. They’re high in natural dietary fibre and a great source of vegan protein, which I love. I use organic gluten-free rolled oats instead of instant porridge oats.
Oats are not strictly a raw food unless it’s specified on the packaging. Even so your basic unroasted, unflavoured oats are accepted by many in the raw food community, myself included. Feel free to swap them with soaked buckwheat which makes a great alternative to oats in this recipe.
If you prefer steel cut oats instead of rolled oats remember to soften them by soaking overnight in water so they are easier to digest.
