This is the easiest recipe in the world. Make it when you need a break from almond milk, a little mineral and protein boost, or when you need something strange to top a bowl of cereal. Adding spirulina to plain old hemp milk helps to boost the alkalinity and blood building properties. Spirulina, because it’s rich in chlorophyll, is said to safely help boost iron production and relieve or prevent anemia. Here are some other benefits:
- So many minerals. Hemp seeds are a good source of iron and manganese, plus electrolyte minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, calcium and sodium. Spirulina contains easy to absorb forms of electrolyte minerals potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as antioxidant selenium, oxygen carrying iron and bone building phosphorous.
- Plant-based protein. 25% of the calories in hemp seeds come from protein; 48% of the calories from spirulina come from protein.
- Mega omegas. Hemp seeds are rich in both omega-3 and -6 fatty acids in the perfect ratio that’s similar to the structure of fats in our cells.
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1 cup water
- ¼ tsp spirulina
- dash stevia or maple syrup
- Put all ingredients in a blender and whiz until combined. No need to soak or strain, you’re good to go!
