Hemp seeds are the surprise ingredient in this creamy strawberry shake. In addition to being a perfect protein (not many plant foods are), hemp seeds also deliver omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to protect your heart and boost your brain power. Chia seeds, another top ranked source of plant protein, are ideal for building lean muscle, burning fat and balancing blood sugar.

  • 1 cup coconut milk
