Power Smoothie

 Hemp is a wonderful healthy addition to any smoothie or oatmeal.
"They are a complete protein. Hemp hearts also contain the essential fatty acids omega 6 and omega 3. In addition, hemp hearts are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E, as well as the minerals calcium and iron. Hemp seeds contain 25 percent protein, 35 percent fatty acids and 27 percent carbohydrates (primarily fiber)." ` from

Hippie Butter Hemp protein powder is another addition I enjoy. It is not as processed as many other protein powders.

One of last week's smoothies, was banana, apple, pear and greens. So refreshing!


  1. I tried hemp in my smoothies...I know how good it is for you but I could not stand the taste!! I like flax and chia but I'll pass on the hemp!

  2. Ya man, but does it give you the munchies? Seriously, I will look for this in my natural foods store. I love my new NutriBullett. Looks like you do too.

    1. LOL, No munchies and you could still pass a drug test if you needed to.:)

    2. Love the name of it though! Still lots of hippies left in Maine.

  3. I do the hemp seeds and have tried the protein, but just can't get past the taste. Maybe I need the Hippie version! LOL

  4. Hemp. Just the idea makes me sneeze. I wonder how it tastes. I'll look at the health food store
