This has been my go-to breakfast for the past week. Because mangoes! Seriously could eat them all day.
This smoothie contains 4 of my most favorite foods ever: Mango, maca, hemp seeds, and aloe. These ingredients make up for a very simple and vibrant smoothie.
I love adding maca root powder to smoothies for hormone balancing, energy, and mood boosting support. I also just love hemp seeds and their amazing properties, which I talk about here.
Aloe has just recently become a favorite ingredient mostly because of it's healing properties. It can have a strong flavor, but can be easily masked in smoothies. Aloe is an amazing food for digestion and healing the gut lining. It also aids detoxification, supports the immune system, and hydrates the skin to make it silky smooth. I prefer to use fresh aloe gel from the leaf, which you can typically find at health food stores, but you can also find the gel/juice already bottled. Just make sure it only contains aloe and not other preservatives or additives.
2 mangoes, fresh or frozen
1 1/2 cups raw coconut water
1 Tablespoon raw maca root powder
1-2 Tablespoons raw hemp seeds
Gel of 1 fresh aloe leaf
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
