Hemp Power Protein Smoothie Recipe

hempsmoothie428b By Natasha Longo Wake Up World

Hemp is one of my favorite proteins for many reasons. Most hemp protein powders on the market have no fillers or additives and it provides the 8 essential amino acids and fatty acids. You’ll need much less hemp protein than other types of proteins for equal benefit. Your body will also immediately recognize and digest natural, whole hemp protein and it won’t slow you down, bloat you, or make you feel uncomfortable.

Hemp seed protein has natural plant chlorophyll and alkalizes to maintain Ph balance in your body. It’s also loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

It’s organic whole food, non-GMO with complete proteins: You’re digesting the same nutrition that the human body has recognized for those 200,000 years, all the way back down the food chain. Try translating that statement to most other foods.

Recipe: Hemp Power Smoothie

1.5 cups coconut milk (substitute organic brown rice/almond milk)

1/2 cup water or your favorite herbal tea

2 Tbsp of your favorite hemp protein powder

1 Tbsp organic nut butter (almond and cashew work well)

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1 banana

1 tsp chia seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp spirulina

1-2 ice cubes – optional

Place all ingredients in the blender and thoroughly mix until liquified with a smooth consistency.

This recipe makes two full 10oz glasses which you may share or consume on your own.

The best time to consume this smoothie is first thing in the morning. You may even find that it will stave off hunger for several hours.
