Homemade Hemp Milk

Drink

Hemp seeds are one of the staples that are always in my pantry. Why? Because they’re loaded with so many benefits! They’re rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, protein, minerals, and Vitamin E. They even have the ability to reduce PMS and menopause symptoms. WHAT?! Maybe I should’ve started with that because nourishing my Flo is always my focus. I will be making another post about living in my Flo and honoring my cycle, thanks to the goddess Alisa Vitti, so stay tuned for that! But now, back to hemp seeds.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/2 cup of hemp seeds
Make it

Combine filtered water + hemp seeds in a blender. Blend on high for about 2 minutes. Straining in a fine mesh strainer is optional (I did this step because I need a new blender, but if you have a Vitamix there is no need!) Feel free to flavor with cinnamon, vanilla, matcha, honey, or anything you can think of!

Nourishing with Intention
  • Hemp seeds provide fiber, Omega 3 + 6 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals

Citrus Maca Chai Smoothie
Anyone else excited that it's currently citrus season? I know I am! I've recently been learning more about chakras and why it's important to make sure they're unblocked. The sacral chakra, in particular, is responsible for feminine energy and reproductive organs. So how do you know if your sacral chakra is blocked and how do you unblock it? You may have a lack of motivation, creativity, and reduced libido if your sacral chakra is blocked.
