Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl

Think of this as almost like a chocolate milkshake but one that is actually filled with all things good! You might think that this is impossible…..but give this one a go and I think you’ll agree it’s thick, creamy, and slightly chocolatey too!

If you haven’t heard the hype about hemp seeds yet then you are certainly missing out! They are loaded with goodness, from healthy fats to an abundance of protein and essential nutrients. The omega-3 fatty acids found within hemp seeds are great for nourishing your mind as well as your heart. This kind of fat reduces inflammation in the body as well as promoting cognitive function and memory. For this reason, having one of my hemp seed smoothie bowls first thing in the morning can really help you to start the day with your best foot forwards!

Hemp seeds are also amazing because they contain all of the essential amino acids. This makes them a complete source of protein which is fantastic for those on a purely plant-based diet. Just three tablespoons of these seeds equates to 10 grams of seriously high-quality protein!

Hemp Seed Smoothie Bowl2To make this smoothie bowl for two people, you will need the following ingredients:

2 cups / 5oz / 140g of spinach
2 cups / 5oz / 140g of kale
1/2 a cucumber, roughly chopped
1 ripe banana
1/2 an avocado, peeled and de-stoned
1 tbsp of hemp seeds
1 tsp of spirulina
1 cup / 8fl oz / 225ml of coconut milk
1 tbsp of raw cacao
A handful of ice (optional)

Hemp Seed Smoothie BowlTo make this smoothie bowl, all you need to do is place all of the ingredients (except the ice) into a blender. You can then blitz for approximately two minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.

If you want to chill the smoothie, you can then add the ice to the blender and blitz again. Once everything is combined together, spoon it into bowls and serve immediately.

  1. I made a smoothie almost like this for breakfast today, although I didn’t think to add cucumber! I love that bright blue-green tinge that spirulina gives to smoothies 🙂

  2. Something about smoothies, especially for two! This sounds great, like a little date in a bowl. Such a pretty spring green, too!
