Hemp Smoothie





Inspired by the beautiful festival of colours (Holi), here's my healthy spin on Bhang (Cannabis drink). And I promise this hemp smoothie won't get you twisted ;)

If you are planning on turning vegan, hemp powder is a fab source of protein & calcium in addition to many other nutrients. So next time anyone says "but where will you get your protein from?" you know exactly what to say!

Packed with omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids, protein & calcium, this could be a great energiser any day of the week. Hemp is also a rich source of dietary fibre.

I made this for 'Holi' last week. Sorry I am uploading it a week later, no excuses for a lazy girl! Anyway this turned out really delicious and the simple recipe is definitely worth sharing.

You will need the following for this smoothie- 
1 banana, 2 if they are small (ripe)
1 cup almond milk
1 table spoon almond butter
1 table spoon hemp powder
A dash of matcha powder (use this sparingly)
A pinch of cinnamon
A few drops of vanilla extract

Blend everything until smooth! And voila your healthy bhang aka hemp smoothie is ready.

Let me know if you try this one. See you next time xoxox
