This morning, I made this delicious Vegan & Gluten-free Lemony Hemp protein smoothy! I added a few other healthy things & drank 1 big smoothy as a nice drinkable healthy breakfast! You see?
What is Hemp protein, I hear you say?
Raw 100% organic hemp protein powder is a raw powder from hemp seeds. After the raw hemp seeds are cold pressed & gently milled, the resulting fine green powder can be easily added into your daily breakfasts, smoothies etc.
Hemp seeds are very healthy & an excellent source of minerals, fatty acids & proteins. It is also a healthy source of dietary fiber, chlorophyll, and minerals including magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. This finely milled powder has a rich, nutty flavor that is ideal for smoothies, baked goods or any recipe that could use a protein and fiber boost.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For 2 big smoothies
1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened almond milk/ I use home-made
1 tablespoon (15 ml) raw hemp protein powder
1 big juicy orange, peeled & deseeded, cut into 2
1/2 avocado, green flash scooped out with a spoon
2 teaspoons raw maca powder
1/4 cup (30 gr) raw pecan halves
juice of 1/2 lemon
Step 2: Blend Your Ingredients Into Your Vitamix!
Place every ingredient in this order into your beloved Vitamix. Use your tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades! Blend on high & on High-speed until all is beautifully combined. This will take only 10 seconds or so. taste! You must taste the lemon, avocado & then the hemp! Pour into larger smoothy glasses & enjoy straight away! :) MMM!
