I love finding creative ways to feed the whole family.

This past weekend I went to the Hamptons with my husband, our best friends and their 1 1/2 year old baby, Dagny. Our trip inspired me to find unique protein sources that are practical for adults, and children.

Hemp seeds are a popular vegetarian source of protein, and I love them because they’re very versatile and mild in taste. These greenish-beige seeds are slightly bitter and nutty and can be sprinkled in smoothies, on top of cereal, and even added to trail mix. They’re also super small and soft, so they can be eaten by the spoonful!

If you have a picky child who gravitates toward starchy foods, like pasta and fries, try adding in some hemps seeds or some hemp milk to their daily routine for a dose of protein. 1.5 Tablespoons have 5g of protein.

This hemp milk is sweet and creamy and a dairy and nut-free way to get in some good fats and protein. It also has potassium and magnesium, so it’s great for adults to drink after a workout to help replenish muscles.

Home-Made Hemp Milk
What You’ll Need:

1/2 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
1 1/2 cups filtered water
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons raw unrefined coconut butter
pinch of sea salt

1. Blend all of the ingredients together for about 60 seconds until milky white.
Drink on its own in a glass, add to cereal or a healthy smoothie.

Makes approx 2 cups milk. (It’s pretty filling so I would separate into four 1/2 cup servings). Store in the fridge in an air-tight jar or container for about 3 days.

*I didn’t find it necessary to strain, but you can strain through a nut bag if you prefer to have a smoother consistency.
