Raspberry Lemon Hemp Smoothie

IMG_7891

Raspberry and lemon, a match made in heaven.  If you have all these ingredients in your kitchen right now I suggest you make this today! If you don’t, then I highly recommend adding them to your shopping list this week.  The tartness of the raspberries and lemons remind me of a raspberry sorbet.  Meaning it’s delicious!!

This makes for a perfect snack when you need a little energy boost or for a sweet tangy treat to fulfil a craving.  It would also make a refreshing treat on a hot summers day.

Because it reminds me of sorbet, I’m imagining you could reduce the amount of water and/or increase the amount of hemp seeds to transform it into a pudding of sorts. That way, you can eat with a spoon instead of drink.  I am sure it would be equally delicious.  Let me know if you give it a try.  Could make for a great dessert. Continue reading

Like all leafy greens they are loaded with chlorophyll, which has been noted to purify the blood, lymph nodes and adrenal glands. Continue reading

Mango Raspberry Romaine Green Smoothie

This mango raspberry romaine green smoothie is amazing for several reasons. The first 2 reasons are obvious. It tastes great and is really good for you.

What I think is great about this smoothie is that it is perfect for people who have never tried and/or made a green smoothie before.

Romaine doesn’t have as strong a taste as some other greens like kale, collard greens, or dandelion greens. Its flavour is present in the smoothie, however it is a familiar one to most people and one that is not overpowering. Continue reading
