These Hemp Smoothies Will Transform Your Morning

There's no better way to start your day than with a healthy, delicious smoothie.

While all those fruits are good for you, you can make your smoothies even healthier by adding nutrition-packed hemp seeds

Because of its association with marijuana, hemp sometimes has a bad reputation. Unlike marijuana, though, hemp contains no THC and will not get you high.

The truth is that hemp is one of the healthiest things you could add to your diet. Among its many benefits are:

  • Great source of dietary fiber
  • High in vitamins A, B, D, and E, as well as iron and calcium
  • Packed with protein, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids
  • Improved digestion
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Healthier skin
  • Improved immune function

Whether you eat it, drink it, or use it as oil, hemp is a wonderful addition to your healthy lifestyle.

Here are four recipes for hemp smoothies you're guaranteed to love.
