Strawberries and frozen banana—again? Power out of a smoothie slump by blending new ingredients, like hemp seeds, winter squash, and dried figs, into a health-boosting beverage your taste buds will love.
Keep this immunity-boosting smoothie, another Aaron Ash creation, on regular rotation during cold and flu season. It’s packed with vitamin C-rich orange juice and blueberries plus a dash of disease-fighting blue-green algae. For staying power, add hemp seeds, a great vegan source of protein and essential fatty acids.
1 tbsp hulled hemp seeds
1–1¼ cups orange juice
3–4 kale leaves
½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
