Chocolate Strawberry Hemp Smoothie For A Cancer Diet


Chocolate Strawberry Hemp Smoothie For A Cancer DietBy: Lisa Robbins, A Holistic Nutritionist and Author of The Cancer Journal ~ Heal Yourself!. The health benefits you will receive from a “Chocolate Strawberry Hemp Smoothie” are: cancer fighting antioxidants from strawberries, omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids from hemp milk, and phytoestrogens to prevent breast cancer growth found in flax seed.

Hemp milk is one of the healthiest milks to use for this cancer fighting smoothie recipe because it has a balanced ratio of omega fats. It is also a safe option for people who are allergic to tree nuts or soy. It may be a little hard to find so we have included a recipe on how to make your own homemade hemp milk.

How To Make Homemade Hemp MilkHow To Make Raw Hemp Milk

Nut and seeds milks are very simple to make and take all of 30 seconds. Blend a handful of raw hemp seeds and two cups of fresh clean water until smooth and creamy, about one minute.

Ingredients:

  • Handful of Hemp Seeds
  • 2 Cups Alkaline Water

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to blender
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy
  3. If you don’t like the fiber in your nut milk (it’s kind of chalky) just filter the milk through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag, which you can purchase at a health food store.

It is best to drink it hemp milk with its full of fibre, minerals and protein. You can also pour the milk off the top from the blender and place it in a jar. Use the remaining fibre in a smoothie by adding more water, a banana (or other fresh or frozen fruit like mango, pineapple, apple, pear, or any type of berry), a large handful of fresh leafy greens and a knob of fresh ginger root.

Keep your nut milk refrigerated. It will only last one or two days in the fridge, so use it up.

Use fresh, raw nut or seed milk in a glass by itself, in a smoothie to keep you from getting hungry longer, in cream soups, or in any recipe that calls for milk.

What kind of nuts or seeds can you use?

All kinds!

Macadamia nuts are great for nut milks because they make the smoothest, creamiest milk, but they are also the most expensive and hard to find.

Another favourite is creamy raw cashew milk, or almond milk made from slivered almonds, so you don’t have to soak the acidy skins off.

One of the healthiest milks is from hemp seeds, which have a balanced ratio of omega fats. Others seeds work well too, sunflower, pumpkin, even sesame seeds can be made into milk.

The only criteria are that they are raw, and if they have skins, like whole almonds and walnuts, that they are soaked for three or four hours first. Soaking removes hard-to-digest enzyme inhibitors that coat most nuts and seeds, and makes your nut milk much more palatable without bitter skins.

Raw Milk Variation

Cocoa: Warm it with a spoonful each of organic fair trade cocoa and unpasteurized honey.
