This hits the spot when you want a semi-sweet milkshake, sans milk. The hemp provides a good amount of omega fatty acids, protein and fiber. Cashew butter provides some added healthy fats and minerals.
- 4 Tb hemp hearts
- 2 scoops Vital Proteins collagen* (the blue canister)
- 2 Tb nut butter (cashew, almond etc) OR 1/4 cup whole, raw nuts**
- 1 banana
- 1-2 pitted dates
- 1/2 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
- 2 c filtered water
- 2 c ice
*You can substitute any plain, unflavored protein powder, but avoid flavored or sweetened ones.
**ideally when you’re using whole nuts, it’s best to soak them in filtered water with a pinch of salt for 4-8 hours. Drain and rinse before adding to your blender.
