Choc Hemp Recipes

Posted by MACaldwell 21/09/2018 0 Comment(s) Vegan Recipes,

We love hemp, both for its taste and its nutritional benefits so we're very excited to have Plant Fuel Nutrition now available on My Vegan Mart. 

Don't know much about Hemp? Well, here is the short version and why you should try it...

Hemp Protein is a plant protein formed from cold pressing hemp seeds. It is a vegan protein source and in its raw form it has a slightly nutty flavour. Hemp is a great source of protein which contains all 9 essential amino acids, a great balance of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. It's also one of the few sources of the hard to get GLA - a plant derived Omega 6.

Plant Fuel Nutrition use only organic Australian hemp manufactured from cold-pressed hemp seed. Their hemp protein is sourced from farms in Tasmania and NSW. 

The Pure Hemp Protein is extremely versatile, or for some extra deliciousness try the Chocolate Hemp Pro - the Organic Cold Pressed Australian Hemp Protein has been mixed with cacao and maca power for a smooth, rich taste and is naturally sweeted with organic stevia. There is also a Hemp Seel Oil which is cold pressed using organic Australian hemp seed, unrefined and packed in a glass bottle to retain its freshness.  

There are so many things you can do with these but here are a couple of suggestions. If you try them, let us know what you think!
