I’ve been wanting to try hemp seeds for awhile now. I am constantly trying to find ways to sneak extra protein into our diets. A serving of hulled hemp seeds (approximately 3 tbps) has 11 g of protein! In addition to Omegas 3 & 6, hemp seeds also are a good source of zinc, iron, and magnesium. Check it out. They added a very slight nutty flavor to our smoothie. I added about a 1/3 cup to the blender, which yielded two 6-8oz. smoothies. It blended up very nicely, I did not notice any grittiness or additional thickness to the drink.
