Powerfood Vitality Recipes

Powerfood Vitality adds texture and natural sweetness to spruce up your morning cup of joe or protein shake without adding a ton of sugar.

We love the nutty undertones from the flax, chia and hemp seeds. All you need is a scoop to get a healthy dose of Omega-3 fatty acids and 5 grams of plant-based protein that will not only excite your tastebuds, but the combination of fiber, fat and protein will slow down digestion to facilitate nutrient absorption and maintaining satiety.

Powerfood Active Recipes

Making protein shakes is the most common way to consume hemp protein. Beyond shakes, there are dozens of ways to add hemp protein to your diet.

A chocolate-flavored batch can be added to your morning oatmeal, or you can blend the powder into yogurt, fruit, or non-dairy milk.

Hemp protein can also be used as a replacement for flour in baking recipes—you can make protein bars and high-protein pancakes, muffins, and breads with it. (Don’t worry; heat won’t damage the protein.)

And to make things easier, here are 4 recipes using hemp protein you can use to supercharge your day.

Ingredients:
  • 1 scoop grass-fed whey isolate, vanilla
