• 1-1/2 cups purified water
• 1 cup fresh or frozen mango, pitted, cut into chunks
• 2 medium or 3 small frozen bananas, cut into 1-inch chunks
• 1/4 cup raw hulled hemp seeds
• 2 tablespoons raw almond butter
• 1 tablespoon raw honey, raw agave nectar, or maple syrup
• 1 teaspoon natural vanilla flavoring

1. Put the water, mango, bananas, hemp seeds, almond butter, honey, vanilla, and salt in a blender and blend on high until very smooth and silky, 60 to 90 seconds.

2. Pour into glasses or insulated mugs. This shake is rich in fiber, fat, and natural sugars, so be sure to “chew” each sip, mixing well with your saliva so that it digests with ease.
