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
- 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.
