- Mango - I prefer a nice, ripe, fresh mango for my smoothies. While frozen mango is convenient to use, I've just not been able find frozen mango that's as nice and sweet as a good fresh mango.
- Spinach - Here is an excellent source of several essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin K. Vitamin K is important for bone health, and spinach is one of the best sources of Vitamin K.
- Banana - Use either a fresh, ripe banana or a frozen one. Just be sure to peel and slice the banana before you freeze it! This is a great way to deal with bananas that you know you won't be able to use up before they become overripe.
- Almond Milk - I tested this recipe with unsweetened almond milk. You could certainly substitute another unsweetened dairy free milk, if you wish.
- Hemp Hearts - Also known as hemp seeds, they're a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and plant-based protein.
