The only thing better than organic hemp flour is Vanilla organic hemp powder. Sweetened with Stevia and flavoured with cocoa, CHII plant-based protein powder is made with the highest-quality, natural ingredients.
Hemp protein powder is an important source of complete proteins and essential fatty acids for vegans and vegetarians especially. Since the most common source of these nutrients is fish and meat, anyone who follows a plant-based diet will likely fall short.
Like quinoa, hemp seeds have all 20 amino acids including those the body is incapable of producing itself. Rarely do you find plant-based proteins with such a complete nutritional profile. In fact, hemp protein is superior to brown rice protein and pea protein for this very reason. Moreover, hemp is not only vegan-friendly, unlike whey protein, but it's hardly ever processed or modified either as soy protein usually is.
Hemp protein powder is made from hemp seeds that are hulled and cold-pressed for organic hemp oil. Once the oil has been extracted, the dry seed-cake is ground up and refined until the new product has a protein concentration of about 50%.

The high levels of fibre and protein in hemp powder make it an excellent tool for weight loss and maintenance. The fast-absorbing protein helps the body build muscle mass and stave off hunger pains, and the insoluble fibre stabilises blood sugar and regulates the digestive system. A diet high in fibre will also help to ward off heart disease, type-2 diabetes, diverticulitis disease, and constipation.
These two macro-nutrients make for a formidable combination in this power-packed protein powder, which also just so happens to be lactose-free, glucose-free, and cholesterol-free. Plus, you get your vanilla fix at the same time!
CHII hemp protein powder should always be stored somewhere cool and dry in a cupboard or a pantry out of direct sunlight. For best use, refrigerate upon opening. Hemp plant-based protein can also be stored in the freezer for a full 12 months from the date it was handled and packaged.

Vanilla Hemp Protein Smoothie
CHII Plant Based Protein Powder can make just about anything a bit healthier. This smoothie is a delicious sweet treat you can feed your family for breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning or as a quick, healthy snack after school when the afternoon is packed with activities. In fact, you could even make it on a weekday morning because it's so easy and quick.
The best part of this organic vanilla hemp smoothie though is the fact that it's totally vegan and requires no added sugar. This recipe calls for almond milk, which is easier for the body to absorb not to mention lactose-free. The dates and frozen banana are more than sufficient to give this smoothie the sweetness it needs.
If you want more of a shake than a smoothie, then decrease the amount of almond milk to 1.5c. and add another date or two. With a bit less liquid, the fruit will give the drink a rich, creamy texture. You could also consider adding a scoop of ice cream before blending for an extra special treat!
•2 c. almond milk
•2 T. unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
•3 T. Vanilla CHII Plant Based Protein Powder
•2-3 pitted large Medjool dates
•1 large peeled and frozen banana
•1/4 t. cinnamon
•4 large ice cubes
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. And viola!
Mixed in your morning smoothie, your favorite breakfast cereal, or your vanilla yogurt, CHII Plant-Based Protein Powder will provide you with the raw energy your body needs to get moving and stay focused all day long. Now in chocolate, pomegranate, and vanilla, this organic hemp powder is sure to tickle your taste buds!
