The simplicity of smoothies is what makes them the most perfect anytime food ever; All you really need to do is throw a few fruits in the blender and you have something delicious. But sometimes it’s nice to mix up something that has a little more depth.

This power smoothie has a great earthiness from the hemp seeds, dates, and cinnamon but the lemon and orange juices keep it light and bright. The carrots add a warm welcoming color, and the Greek yogurt will help keep you full for longer. Best yet, it’s not an overly sweet blend, so you’ll love making this one time and time again as a replacement for any meal of the day.
