• 14 ounces water {or 1/2 coffee}
  • 1/4 cup raw soaked nuts
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3 tbsp. hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • scoop fiber
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract {optional}
  • dash stevia

Warning:  this drink might make you high……  It does contain hemp seeds, which some of you are wondering, is this legal?!  What kind of blog is this?  With a little research, one can be assured that this majestic seed will deliver in many ways, but I promise the only high you will feel is the natural energy you get from feeding your body these super foods!

The hemp in this recipe gives this energy drink 10 grams of protein!  Hemp seeds contains all 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids and they have high amounts of fatty acids.  I prefer using the whole seed rather than the protein powders you can buy in containers.  This assures me I am getting the most out of this grandiose seed.

These are the adjectives we all should be able to use to describe ourselves in order to know that we are healthy!  Regular, vibrant energy, clear skin, clear thinking,…. did I have you at regular?  This superfood smoothie will have you just that!!  All of that, I should say!

Serves: 1-2

Ingredients
  • 14 ounces water {or ½ coffee}
  • ¼ cup raw soaked walnuts {any nuts}
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 3 tbsp. hempseeds
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • scoop of clean fiber
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • dash stevia

Instructions
  1. In a Vitamix or strong blender add liquid, nuts, banana and blend.
  2. Add hemp seeds, cacao powder, fiber, extracts and coconut oil.
  3. Blend together and add stevia to taste.
  4. Drink right away, as the longer it sits the smoothie will thicken due to the fiber.

Notes
If you use coffee you can omit the extract. Ice the coffee before using in the smoothie. I use decaffeinated extract or the organic instant freeze dried coffee. This super food smoothie has about 20 grams of protein naturally and not to mention all the amazing minerals and vitamins from iron to magnesium! When adding fiber choose a clean pure psyllium powder. Please use organic wherever you can.
