This green smoothie is the perfect morning pick-me-up to get the day started off right. The mix of natural sugars, vitamins, and minerals from the banana + mango + spinach combo really help to perk you up while the healthy fats and protein from the pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts keep you feeling satiated. 13+ grams of protein | 9 grams of fibre
1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened almond milk
1 ripe banana, frozen
1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped mango, frozen
1-2 large handfuls of baby spinach
1/4 cup (60 ml) pumpkin seeds (Pepita seeds)
2 tbsp (30 ml) hemp hearts (hulled hemp seeds)
optional: 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder + 1/4 cup water
In a blender (or large tumbler if you’re using an immersion blender) layer the spinach, banana, mango, pumpkin seeds, and hemp hearts. Add the almond milk and blend until the pumpkin seeds are really really smooth. This recipe makes a single 16 oz serving sized smoothie.
Der Regisseur Francis Ford Coppola hat in seinem Geburtsort Bernalda/Italien das Palazzo Margherita erworben und renoviert. Das Palazzo ist ein kleines feines Hotel mit fantastischen Gärten und natürlich einem Privatkino mit über 300 Filmen aus Francis´ Privatsammlung. Übrigens, seine Tochter Sofia hat hier letztes Jahr Thomas Mars geheiratet.
Jacques Grange designed this suite with input from Sofia Coppola; its mood is delicate and feminine, with hand-painted frescos evoking a misty summer garden at dawn. A Juliette balcony off the bedroom overlooks the courtyard and the palatial bathroom has a steam shower with a clawfoot bathtub. French doors from the bathroom and bedroom lead to a fully-furnished private terrace that offers a magical view of the garden and fountain.
The Garden Room II at the Coppola’s Palazzo Margherita hotel (where Sofia Coppola’s wedding was held) is an elegant and traditional room that opens directly onto the lush private garden and fountain. It features vaulted ceilings, a large closet and a writing desk. A beautifully appointed bathroom is highlighted by a clawfoot bathtub beneath a window that overlooks the garden.
