Blueberry Mango Smoothie

I almost always make my smoothie for the next day the night prior. That way it is ready to go and I have no excuses. I have no idea why I have that motivation at the end of the day instead of at the start of the next! One way I like to leave a little love for my kids (and provide peace of mind to myself) is to leave smoothies for them when I know I will be at work. My job is usually 8am-5pm but because of my commute and the unpredictable nature of cardiology, I never know if I will be home in time to make dinner. The sweetness that the mango and banana lend is balanced by the cinnamon as well as fiber from both the blueberries and hemp seeds. And thanks to the blue hue, no one can tell that it is secretly a green smoothie full of calcium containing spinach! Hemp seeds provide 10g of anti-inflammatory, alkanizing plant based protein in just 3 tablespoons!
