40 Hemp Smoothie Recipes Plus The Many Reasons To Have More Hemp

For thousands of years, man has been using hemp for fiber, paper, clothing, beauty aids,

food, milk , medicinals and more–making it a valuable and versatile natural resource.

Hemp seeds–which are technically a fruit–taste a bit like pine nuts, but with a milder

mellower, flavor–and a softer texture.

Small and round, they have a pleasing, slightly nutty flavor.

Hemp seeds have been hailed as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.

Eating them–and other hemp-based foods–helps to strengthen our  immune systems,

support cardiovascular health and fend off toxins.

What’s more, traditional chinese medicine has been using hemp seeds for more than 2000

years in the treatment of health conditions and ailments.

“Hemp seeds, contain all the

essential amino acids and

 essential fatty acids necessary

 to maintain healthy  human

 life–including  all ten the

of the essential amino acids.

 

No other single plant source has

the essential amino acids in such

an easily digestible form, nor

the essential fatty acids in

as perfect a ratio to meet

human nutritional needs.”

Dubbed the world’s most nutritious seeds, hemp seeds are 33% protein, with Omega 3 and

GLA–the healthy EFAs that doctors recommend.

With a perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linolenic Acid, they are very

important for cardiovascular health and the immune system.

Omegas per 3 tablespoons:

7.5g Omega-6 LA

3.0g Omega-3 ALA

0.6gSuper Omega-6 GLA

0.3g Super Omega-3 SDA

Hemp seeds contain 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs)

that our bodies cannot produce, which makes them great for vegans.

Hemp seeds can be used to make a variety of dishes including salads, veggie burgers,

dressings and sauces, but I like to “keep it simple” and make fresh, healthy, raw hemp

seed smoothies.

I prefer to use organic fruits and ingredients in my healthy smoothies.

You can also add hemp seeds to cereal, soups and vegetable dishes.
