Strawberry Hemp Quinoa Smoothie

This recipe is a must try!

I'm always looking for creative and tasty ways to add great grains like quinoa in my diet. For this recipe you will need a blender. I use a stick blender which works great with less clean up. I love my stick blender. Use organic strawberries not only because strawberries are treated with very large amounts of pesticides, including fungicides. Organic strawberries taste better and have much more flavor. I bought a pint for $2.99 and I use about half for this recipe. One thing I forgot to measure how much this recipe yields, so if you make it let me know!


1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup chopped strawberries
3 tbsp Agave syrup
1 cup hemp milk (almond or rice milk would be fine)
1 cup water

Place quinoa, strawberries, agave and 1 cup of milk in blender and process until smooth. Add remaining liquid and blend. Chill and serve cold. Try it and share what you think!

Simple, easy, healthy and good......
