I hadn’t really planned on buying it, but the 10 grams of protein per serving, omega 3 and 6, and fiber on the packaging caught my eye. It suggested sprinkling the product on salad, cereal and yogurt. I thought it might be great for a smoothie! So, I bought my first ever “hemp hearts” (raw shelled hemp seeds) yesterday.
And this morning I made a smoothie. 🙂
Here is my approximate recipe (I don’t generally measure ingredients in smoothies):
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 banana
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 2 cups vanilla soymilk
- 3 tablespoons hemp hearts
- 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Blend all ingredients together. Makes 2 servings.
Some people might blend it for more time than I did so it becomes much more smooth. But, I liked it this way.
The verdict? Delicious and extremely nutritious! I will definitely be making this again.
