Strawberries and Cream Protein Shake Recipe
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.
