What's This?
Serving size 2

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.

Ingredients

1 Tbsp almond butter1 ½ cup frozen blueberries1 cup vanilla soy milk½ cup plain low-fat yogurt1 cup ice cube1 banana, fresh or frozen¼ cup hemp seed

Directions

  1. Combine soy milk, yogurt, almond butter, and hemp in a blender.
  2. Add frozen fruit (break banana into chunks) and ice cubes and pulse until smoothie is thick and smooth.
  3. Add more ice cubes if you like a thicker smoothie.
