Vanilla Chai and Chocolate Hemp Smoothie + Photo Contest

Vanilla Chai and Chocolate Hemp Smoothie by BodyRebooted

Disclosure: I received samples of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Smoothies to review. As always, all opinions are my own. Full PR & Disclosure here.

I have been a hemp lover ever since I got into nutrition and fitness.

Why?

Because hemp does a body good!

It helps reduce inflammation, lower blood sugar and improve circulation which is great in aiding in the prevention of heart disease. It’s also vegan and contains the heart-healthy omega 3’s and 6’s.

I have been eating Manitoba Harvest’s hemp hearts for about 3 years now and have found a lot of cool ways to incorporate them into my diet like these recipes here, here, here and here. So, you can imagine how STOKED I was when I found out that they JUST LAUNCHED their new line of HEMP PROTEIN SMOOTHIES!

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Smoothie

OMG! It’s like my 2 favorite things in 1!

Manitoba Harvest came out with 3 flavors:

  • Vanilla Chai
  • Chocolate and
  • Mixed Berry

They are all made with their HempPro 70 protein powder, lightly sweetened with organic coconut sugar and organic spinach, kale and broccoli! And because they came from Manitoba Harvests they are certified non-GMO, vegan and made with wind power.

You can SEE the greens in both of my favorite flavors below! (The mixed berry is awesome too – says my hubby, but since I’m allergic to strawberries I didn’t take the chance of trying it).
