Healing Mango Superfood Smoothie with Hemp & Maca

Submitted by Trinity on Thu, 02/16/2017 - 18:04

Superfood smoothies are my favourite way to start the day! I always feel so honoured that I am able to gift my body with the benefits of these little treasures. They give me a sustained boost of energy and flood my system with a wonderful vibrancy to keep me energised all morning long. Every morsel we eat plays a role on our spiritual journey. The energy of our food becomes a part of our being, it goes soul deep - flooding into our cells; directly impacting our vibration by either lowering or raising it. This recipe is definitely one that raises it!

Embracing the power of maca

Everyone who knows me, knows that I don't like to go a day without my maca. I'm a highly sensitive person... so I get startled, frazzled, disturbed by the loud, brash and often over-bearing stimuli in our fast-pace, dog-eat-dog modern world. My fight or flight goes on overdrive and my adrenals go bonkers! Maca however, is my saving grace. I like to slip it in at some point during the day (usual breakfast). It's a well known adapotagen, something that helps us cope in stressful situations – physically, mentally and energetically. Maca is well known for supporting and regulating the endocrine system in both men and women. Read my in depth article about it here: All About Maca

Blast away any nasties with fresh ginger

In this smoothie I am using a good dose of fresh organic ginger to blast away any nasties that might be lingering in the air. Ginger is a super "anti-anything nasty" (anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-nasty-bacterial), so I've become a bit partial to using it in abundance in my cuisine. More on ginger here: Why ginger is so awesome?

A well rounded dose of superfood protein

Hemp Protein Powder gives me a well rounded dose of superfood protein. Although admittedly, with my way of eating I am not concerned about my protein intake (never have been in all my 22 years on a super-healthy plant-based diet). I often use hemp in its whole hulled form too. Hemp is a tried and tested superfood, brimming with anti-oxidants and health-supporting properties. If you are interested check out my article health benefits of hemp seed for more on that.

Spoon it or sip it – whatever you feel like

You don’t have to serve this in a bowl, unless you want to add lots of extra goodies like granola, fresh fruits and whole nuts, seeds and eat it with a spoon. It works perfectly well in a glass if you want to sip it instead.

Healing Mango Superfood Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 large banana
  • 100g (1 cup) frozen mango
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ginger (finely grated)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon hemp protein powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon gelatinazed maca powder
  • Up to 200ml rice milk (or other plant-based milk)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon tahini
  • Sprinkle of hulled hemp seeds (optional)
  1. Add all ingredients to a jug blender and blend until creamy smooth.
  2. Use less liquid if you want it to be super thick.
  3. Pour in a glass and drink as a smoothie or alternatively pour into a bowl, dress with granola, chopped fruit and a sprinkle of hulled hemp seeds and enjoy with a spoon.

I hope that you enjoy this as much as we do!

I just love a good smoothie for breakfast - I hardly eat anything else!

Out here in La Palma there's an abundance of mangos, bananas and the local fruit papaya. They make awesome blends, that make you feel so lift and uplifted.

Thanks for sharing

Open *OK*

Oh yes indeed it's such a gift the be able to get local fresh, tropical fruits for smoothies like this. Such a vibrational raising experience and something very close to my heart! I know those high vibe fruits on La Palma very well ha ha!

I enjoyed the above smoothie this morning for breakfast before pilates - was de-e-e-elicious.

Love the richness of the heart-full knowledge you are sharing Trinity in this recipe and all the recipes in your books and web site. Your way reminds me of a Buddhist nun, her name is Ven Jeong Kwan, who has established a “temple food studio” that preserves the art of Korean, high vibrational food. Thousands of people spend time in her monastery where food is made with love for all. People meditate and food becomes a way for deep exchange between people, the Earth and the Divine. She talks about how food creates the entire human being and how it is a catalyst for attaining freedom of mind, body and spirit. So, on this note, I must go and get some mangos and maca on Monday! Ha!

Much love

That's beautiful, what a joy to read your post Aspasia. I have hear of Ven Jeong Kwan - I've thought before that it would be a dream to enjoy such cuisine from another. I think perhaps melt into the divine instantly.

Enjoy your maca & mango.
with love

Melt into the divine - how beautiful! Well, it may be a bit far to get to Korea, but if the opportunity arises at some point in the future, I will do my best to cook a divine meal for you - always from the heart. And return the blessings in this way!

thank you again.

much love

Ah yes, I don't see myself in Korea - ever ;)
I am really touched and it's beautiful to know you always create your food from the heart. I know your ingredients are always conscious and ethical too. Such a powerful way to let the ripples of love and compassion spread through the world.
