Hemp Seeds & Musk-Melon Smoothie

Hemp seed is a comparatively newer super-food which is making its way slowly in Indian kitchens.It is packed with protein & omega 6 & omega 3 fatty acids. So it is a great addition to a vegan diet.Musk-melon on the other hand keeps you hydrated for long & is good for weight loss & its seeds are also a good source of protein. So a glass full of this smoothie not only helps you with a quick breakfast but supply loads of nutrients to your body…try this…..

INGREDIENTS:

  • Musk Melon 8-10 slices
  • Hemp Seeds Powder 1tbsp
  • Cinnemon Powder[dalchini] 1/2 tsp
  • Honey to taste
  • Musk Melon Seeds 1 tbsp

METHOD:

  1. Leaving melon seeds blend everything together with 1 1/2 glass of water in a blender.Top it up with melon seeds. Consume immediately.If you wish you can add crushed ice. However I prefer it at room temperature.
  2. If you don’t like hemp seeds husk you can mix powder in the water you are using to make smoothie & strain . use this water to blend your smoothie. This hemp powder water can be stored in refrigerator for upto 3 days.
  3. However I keep the husk because it adds the fiber content to the smoothie.

Notes :

  • Hemp seeds are still making its way to many supermarkets. However they are widely available online on amazon and flipkart.
  • Hemp seeds come with its husk on it so you need to chew it for little more time. To avoid this you can ground them to powder & use
