Now that we understand the high potency of Hemp let’s look at a few easy ways to prepare some delicious ways to drink it and eat it… injoy
Protein powder. That’s the stuff that comes in big tubs and is used by muscle men in the gym, right? Wronggg. With the rise of vegan and vegetarian diets (which we at Good Hemp are all here for, by the way) protein is becoming ever more important. (Thinking about becoming vegan? Read some tips from our community) We all need enough of it to ensure our bodies have the power to perform healthy cell growth and repair.
And guess what? Hemp protein powder is one of the very best options out there. It’s easy to digest (unlike soya), it’s vegan (unlike whey) and is a complete source of protein, which means it contains all 20 amino acids (including the 9 that your body can’t produce itself). And you don’t have to be a gym bunny to make the most of it. You can down it in a shake before a HIIT class if that’s your style, but hemp protein is just as effective – and even more delicious – when baked into a batch of brownies.

1. Hemp Protein in Smoothies and Shakes
Okay, so this is perhaps an obvious choice, but there’s a reason people the world over are mixing hemp protein powder into shakes. What easier – or tastier – way to make sure you’re getting a morning fix than mixing hemp protein powder in a smoothie along with fresh fruit and veg? Try our super berry smoothie bowl or favorite hemp peanut butter smoothie – so simple and so delicious.
2. Hemp Protein in Pancakes
Get your protein in at breakfast. That way if anyone asks “how do you get protein if you don’t eat meat”, you can simply refer to your morning meal. (Take that, Grandma). We love these protein pancakes by Romy London.
3. Hemp Protein in Waffles
With hemp protein waffles, we’ve strayed away from breakfast and into the realm of brunch. When you’ve got a little extra time at the weekend, give Madeleine Shaw’s hemp protein powder recipe a whirl. She suggests serving her sweet potato and hemp waffles alongside soft-boiled eggs, avocado and miso mushrooms. If you’re vegan just ditch the eggs and it’s equally appetizing.
4. Hemp Protein in Protein Bars
Don’t get caught hungry while on the go – make your very own protein bars with this hemp protein recipe and carry them around with you instead! We’ve see lots of different options for these, crammed with nuts and seeds and yummy things like peanut butter. We love these hemp and chocolate bars by The Protein Chef.
