Grape Hemp Crunch Green Drink

written by Head Health Nutter April 17, 2011

After our last two posts about real food (that is, naturally grown sans chemicals), I was inspired to make a delicious green drink using an ingredient I’ve never tried before: hemp! Check out this yummy, delicious and nutritious blended green meal recipe to help you cleanse this spring.

Hemp seed has a nutty taste and adds just the right amount of crunch to this green drink made mostly of green grapes. As a pleasant contrast, the avocado lends a smooth texture as well as a healthy fat for a satisfying meal in a glass.

Hmmm…does this taste more like veggies or more like fruits? I’m interested in trying smoothies (and I need to eat more veggies in general), but I do not like the taste!

Hi Dimitri, thanks for reading Live Lighter and for your question!

It’s definitely a green drink but the grapes do sweeten it a bit. You can always add a natural sweetener, like honey or maple syrup, until you get used to the taste (there’s usually a marked transition period for most people’s taste buds).

Hope you enjoy it and if you do, check out the other recipes on the blog: http://livelighter.org/119-cleansing-rescipes/

You are welcome! I heard that both grapes and apples add a natural sweetness (which is what I am looking for, as I don’t want to add any additional sweeteners). This is exactly why I liked this recipe! I will check out your other recipes!

Thank you
