Hemp seeds are a wonderful plan-based source of protein. It consists of 36% protein with all the essential amino acids – that’s more than meat! – and has healthy plant fats. Hemp is also one of very few plants that contains a proper balance of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, which the body can’t produce on its own. With a mild, nutty flavor and pleasantly soft texture, our hemp seeds add a superfood boost to any sweet or savory dish. Cashews add a creamy texture and boast  a number of health benefits. They are rich in magnesium, which may contribute to healthy immune function and normal bone health, cashews are a good source of zinc, iron and vitamin K. Plus they have vitamins B1 and B6.

We hope you enjoy this recipe and the many health benefits of the awesome superfoods that go into preparing it.
