This mild flavored smoothie is packed with nutrition! It has a balance of protein (from the hemp hearts), fiber and vitamins (from the fruit, avocado, and veggies), omega 3 fatty acids (from the avocado) and natural sugars (from fruits and coconut water). The coconut water also provides extra vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
