Hemp Seeds

Lastly, my other favorite smoothie topping is hemp seeds! Hemp seeds are just bursting with vitamins and minerals, and they’re also so tasty! Rich, nutty and slightly reminiscent of walnuts in my opinion, yet much softer, hemp seeds are just little bombs of flavor and nutrition. They have protein, zinc, fiber, Vitamin E, magnesium, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, omega 6 fatty acids, are raw, have no saturated fat and are low in carbohydrates. This makes them excellent for your body and your blood sugar.

Try using one or two of these smoothie toppings on your next smoothie. Or, use 2 tbsp. of a single topping, or mix up all of them in a bowl and use 2 tbsp as a combination. on one of your smoothies. These smoothie toppings make great sources of nutrition, flavor, and are amazing to add texture to your smoothies. I even like to freeze my smoothies for about an hour before eating them. They thicken up like ice cream so you can eat them with a spoon and enjoy these toppings even more like your typical ice cream treat. Do you put toppings on your smoothies?
