If you are a fan of hemp seeds, which I don’t know anyone who isn’t these days, you will enjoy this recipe. Lately I’ve been adding hemp and chia seeds in all my smoothies. Just so I could get added protein and sustain energy thought my busy day. I recommend giving them a try, especially if you are wanting extra protein, omega 3’s and omega 6’s.
