This vegan high protien breakfast smoothie recipe proves Dr. Oz is still the Smoothie King! He has a healthy smoothie recipe for every occasion – weight loss and detox, and everyday meal replacements. This peachy protein breakfast smoothie will get you started in the morning with healthy fats, a generous dose of protein from plant based protein powder as well as hemp seeds, and good natural sugars to get you going. We see why this smoothie is part of Dr Oz’s 30 Day Meal Plan Detox Diet Recipes! This protein smoothie would also be great after a hard muscle building workout. If you can, grind your own flax seeds to optimize their nutritional benefits if you add this optional ingredient (note: it changes the flavor a bit). Whip this up in the snap in your high-powered Blendtec or Vitamix blender, or make it in a “regular” blender (just be sure to chop up the dates!).

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS OF HEMP SEEDS
Hemp seeds provide an amazing array of health benefits! Hemp protein contains all the required proteins in optimal proportions and is a complete source of all 20 known amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs), which our body can’t produce. Hemp seeds are a more easily digestible protein than meat, cheese, eggs, human and cow’s milk, or any other high protein food. The 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the oil of these seeds is thought the be the best in nature for promoting cellular health, and contain plant sterols which may help reduce the risk of colon and prostate cancer. In addition, hemp seeds contain gamma linolenic acid (GLA), antioxidants, fiber, iron, calcium, vitamins B1, B2, B6, D, E, magnesium, potassium, and more! These little seeds are super seeds!
