Oh my goodness I just discovered Hemp Seeds. I had a pack of hemp seeds that have been lurking in my cabinet for over a year now and I never knew what to do with them until this afternoon. I shoved them into a smoothie and they were delicious. This smoothie was incredibly creamy, kind of like a vanilla shake and so tasty. This shake put me in a good mood all day long and the reason being, is that Hemp seeds are high in omega-3′s which contribute to healthy brain, heart, skin and hormonal functions. Hemp seeds are truly a superfood. Here is a great article about this wonderful nutritional superfood.
Hemp Seed Banana Smoothie Recipe (my favorite so far)
In a blender, blend
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 soft mango
- 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds
- dark green leafy vegetable of your choice (I used the green leafy tops of my beets today)
- dash of cinnamon
- little bit of water and some ice
I am walking to Greenlife Grocery Store in the morning to see if I can find these. If they are not there I am ordering them on line.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and make a yummy smoothie for yourself.. Cheers.
