All you need is: – 2 Bananas –  1 1/2 cups Frozen Blueberries _  Coconut Water (cold) – 2TBS Hemp Hearts – 2 drops Vanilla sweet drop – A Blender ( I use my NutriBullet with 32Oz Cup) * make sure your Bananas are ripe for sweetness  & Freeze the bluberries over night 🙂 **NOTE: Hemp hearts are a rich source of nutrition, putting them in the “superfoods” category. Hemp hearts typically contain 33 percent protein, 9 percent omega-3 essential fatty acids, and are an excellent source of iron, vitamin E and GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), an Omega-6 fatty acid.
