Creamy Green Hemp Seed Smoothie

‘Tis the season to detox.

Trouble is, that word is nonsense. (At least in the context of healthy eating).

Unfortunately you cannot “undo” a month-long Christmas cookie binge with a few days of green juices. The body just doesn’t work that way. If our organs were swimming in toxins every time we ate a Cheez-It or overindulged on eggnog, we’d be long gone by now.

“But I feel so much better when I’m on a cleanse!” you say.

That’s because vegetables and fruits are good for you, not because you’re “detoxing” your body of whatever you were eating before.

So what can you do in January, then, to shift from holiday indulgence to a healthier lifestyle?

Well, you can Regroup. Refocus. Recover. Recommit. Recharge.

And while you’re doing those, make this smoothie.

This Creamy Green Hemp Seed Smoothie incorporates some of the real ways to get back to a healthy routine, like:

  • Making veggies & fruits the “main event” at meals and snacks
  • Combining protein with healthy fats and carbohydrates for optimal satisfaction
  • Getting fiber from nuts, seeds and whole grains
  • Eating foods in their whole-food form, as opposed to powders and supplements

And it also happens to taste delicious – which is key for maintaining healthy habits, since nobody wants to eat bland food.

I am super excited to share with you this spinach-hemp green smoothie. Smoothies are a super easy, and less expensive way, to get as much nutrition in your system as possible (compared to juicing). When you make your smoothies, don’t be afraid to throw in things like kale, spinach, avocados, even turmeric, and aloe vera juice. You’ll make yourself an extra delicious green smoothie with all the anti-inflammatory properties that will help you in your healing journey.

Today I am introducing hemp seeds in this recipe. I have to admit that I didn’t really know what to expect adding them in, but they tasted AH-MAAZING that I HAD to share the recipe with you.

I have been adding hemp seeds to about everything lately, and I was surprised to see how delicious this smoothie turned out. So if you don’t know how to introduce hemp seeds into your nutrition, check out this simple recipe…

I get my hemp seeds from Manitoba Harvest because their products are simply very high in quality, and taste really amazing! I am using these Hemp Seeds in this recipe!

Hemp hearts are packed with protein and omegas. They contain 10 essential amino acids, and the rare Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) which helps with inflammation, balancing hormones and heart health.

Checkout this super delicious and fresh spinach-hemp green smoothie. I am using simple ingredients, and the banana-hemp combination gave it an amazing nutty-sweet taste. Get all the benefits of hemp seeds in this delicious mix!
