In reflection of the flower drinks article I posted the other day, I’d like to give you something sweet (and healthy!) to sip on. The power hibiscus smoothie recipe that I found on the Raw Epicurean food blog. Here goes:

Flower Power Hibiscus Smoothie

1 cup hemp seeds
1 cup pure water
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 banana
1 tablespoon hibiscus powder
1 tablespoon lucuma powder or sweetener of choice, optional
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil

First place the hemp seeds in a high-speed blender and the water and blend until liquified. Strain the hemp seed milk through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, set aside. Rinse out the blender container and place on its base. Pour the hemp milk into the blend and add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Serves 2
