Green Smoothie

Have all the benefits from the greens in this smoothie!

Rice bran is very high in magnesium, yogurt will provide some protein (goat yogurt has the highest protein), hemp protein is usually high in fiber plus the Omega 3 benefits, matcha green tea will give you a very good kick of energy, nutritional yeast is a great source of the vitamin B complex for your nervous system, flaxseed oil is the highest vegetable source of Omega 3, mango is sometimes enough sweetener and it contains some good vitamin A,  avocado is a great way to make the smoothie a sustained source of energy with healthy calories!
