Last year, I shared my love for Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts and how great they were when added to smoothies. I’m still loving getting those extra nutrients in whenever I can.
Now it’s even easier to pack the benefits of hemp into our days with the Hemp Protein Smoothie.
I’ve always reached to a protein shake for a quick way to refuel after a sweaty workout. I’ve been loving throwing a few tablespoons of the Hemp Protein Smoothie powder into a shaker cup with a bit of coconut almond milk. I was a bit worried that this protein powder would be too ‘earthy’ tasting but was pleasantly surprised by the flavour. It’s a bit nutty tasting, but nothing overpowering. It mixes smooth with no weird texture. Perfection.
Not only does it taste great just mixed with milk, it’s packed with protein and greens. You can’t go wrong with organic kale, spinach and broccoli, 15 grams of plant-based protein and slightly sweetened with organic coconut sugar. The ingredient list is short and simple, with absolutely no scary stuff. It doesn’t get much better than that really. I’m a fan of all three flavours, chocolate, vanilla chai and mixed berry.
I even decided to test out the hemp protein with some baking, making some flourless chocolate muffins adapted from a recipe found right on the Manitoba Harvest website. They were so simple to make not to mention incredibly tasty, it’s going to be hard not to eat them all before Liam comes home to enjoy them too. Shhhh…don’t tell him ok?
Guess what, you can snag yourself a bag of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Smoothie for yourself for 15% off using code: hempsmoothielaunch16. Did I mention this is a Canadian company (the name might have given that away)? So, no pesky exchange rates to drain your wallet.
What do you look for in a protein powder?
