Hasty Hemp Drink

Hemp is one of nature’s most amazing foods.  It is a complete protein high in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.  This drink is so smooth, with a consistency almost of water, that I cannot call it a smoothie.  My girls and I enjoyed this after our morning bike ride today, and it was delicious, nutritious, and quenched our thirst.  It made one large serving.  I enjoyed the glass you see above, and my daughters each drank a smaller glass.

Hasty Hemp Drink

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt (unsweetened preferred, if not then vanilla or plain)
  • 1/8 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 handful of dark leafy greens (I used an organic kale blend)
  • 1 tbsp. honey (optional)

Blend all ingredients in the Vitamix (or other high-powered blender) and enjoy!  You could substitute a dairy yogurt if that is your preference.

Note:  I cannot guarantee the smooth consistency if you use a standard blender.   You could also substitute dairy yogurt if that is your preference.
