Recipe Alert: Rosy Strawberry Hemp Milk

In need of a heart warming drink that naturally enhances your mood and makes your skin glow from the inside? Try this summery strawberry-rose-hemp milk!

Unlike other homemade nut milks, which require a long soaking and straining process, this hemp seed version can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. Hempseeds are truly a nutrition powerhouse. One cup of this recipe will provide you with 14g of complete protein, a good dose of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, and zinc, known for its skin healing powers. The nutritional benefits doesn’t end there either!

These super seeds are also an excellent source of iron, B vitamins and manganese – all necessary nutrients to help your skin glow from the inside and out. The addition of strawberries add a necessary vitamin C boost to the drink, which can help the skin to build collagen, and their high antioxidant content can help protect your skin from environmental damage. The rose water enhances your mood while improving your skin texture from within and provides a subtle floral aftertaste. Sweetening the milk with raw honey; or as I like to call it, “liquid gold” for the skin, will add antibacterial and antioxidant benefits to the drink.

So what are you waiting for? Get your glow on now!

Simply blend the following ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth:

  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 4 Tbsp of hemp seed
