RECIPE and INSTRUCTIONS for this Hemp Seed Green Smoothie can be found at the bottom of this post.
If you are like me, smoothies are a great, easy way to get tasty nutrition into your body. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, and also after a workout (another area I need to focus on).
Eating healthy is the EASY part. I wish making low-calorie smoothies as part of the “work out”, I could do this all day long LOL.
Sometimes I need a quick healthy snack. No-bake energy balls are perfect. Made with nuts, seeds, and superfoods. Even the kids can help to make a batch.
How To Make A Clean Green Hemp Smoothie
It doesn’t get easier than throwing everything in a blender. Blitz, pour, and drink! Easy as 1-2-3. So much nutrition with really no effort.
For this healthy green smoothie, I combined:
- hemp hearts
Spinach is such an awesome green superfood, and it makes this low-calorie smoothie such a nice colour.
Fibre from the apple, sweetness from the strawberries, and plant-based protein from the hemp hearts make this simple smoothie recipe great for any time of day. You won’t believe how calorie wise it is too. Green smoothies are GREAT for weight loss!
Even my hubby who LOVES (and I mean LOVES) sweet stuff didn’t even need any additional sweetener. He is such a dessert person. Thank goodness my breakfast banana split keeps his sweet tooth at bay.
Best Greens For Smoothies
This is where you can have some variety. I used spinach but don’t stop there. Other great options would be:
- swiss chard
- romain lettuce
- beet greens
- collard greens
Have you tried hemp hearts? Little nutritious gems packed with protein. A great way to get an energy boost.
Easy to add to recipes or just eat as a snack on their own. They come in a variety of flavours too.
They contain omega 3, omega 6 (GLA), fibre, protein, arginine, phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamin E, and magnesium.
Do Hemp Hearts Have CBD?
No, they do not. CBD lives in the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, not in the seeds. Hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil, which contains cannabinoids.
Using Hemp Hearts In Recipes
With Valentine’s just around the corner, you don’t have to throw your new-found healthy eating out the window. My Hemp Heart Cookies are perfect to celebrate with. Gluten-free delicious cookies dipped in dark chocolate.
If you want to start your day with chocolate (like many people do), Hemp Chocolate Smoothie with Raspberries & Pomegranates might be just what you are looking for. Nutrition can be totally delicious.
