I know what some of you may be thinking. No, this smoothie won’t get you buzzed.

This is the first smoothie recipe I’ve posted containing hemp; so let’s take a look at why hemp is a great addition to your smoothies.

Hemp Health Benefits

A complete protein, rich in essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-3, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, hemp is a bona fide superfood. Hemp contains many B vitamins, vitamins A, D and E, calcium, iron and is a good source of dietary fiber. Here’s a quick list of the top health benefits attributed to hemp.

  • Brain & Heart health (thanks to high amount of essential fatty acids)
  • Improved digestion
  • Weight loss (hemp is a natural appetite suppressant)
  • Healthy skin
  • Boosted immune function

For your smoothies, you can purchase hemp protein powder or shelled hemp seeds. The seeds are mild with a slight nutty flavor. Besides smoothies, hemp seeds are also good in salads and homemade trail mixes.

This is a simple hemp smoothie recipe – feel free to incorporate some of the suggested add-ons or anything else that sounds good to you. Enjoy!
