Blueberry Hemp Smoothie

hemp recipes

This smoothie marked my inaugural use of hemp seeds.  I wasn’t sure what to do with hemp or whether I would like it, but I found that the seeds added a nice texture and nutty flavor to my smoothie.  They also made a smoothie more of a filling meal because of their fat, protein, and fiber content.

Remember that smoothies need to be viewed as a meal or hearty snack rather than a drink.  As long as you don’t drink smoothies down like water and keep the portion size reasonable, these thick fruity treats make a healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch, or snack.  This Blueberry Hemp Smoothie is especially nutty and creamy because of the seeds and almond butter…mmmm.

If you read yesterday’s post and thought “What on earth would I ever do with hemp seeds?” this recipe is for you. Enjoy!

    Well, I’ve just excitedly made this smoothie. It looks amazing. The flavour however tastes of hemp seed, and, nothingness. I expected a good taste, there is a slight tangyness from the blueberries but other than that it is completely bland 🙁 I’ll go throw some pineapple in to see if that will liven it up.

      I’m so sorry you didn’t love this recipe like I did, Nikki. Perhaps swapping out the soy milk for orange or pineapple juice would give you the tangy flavor you’re looking for. Let me know if you try this replacement 🙂
