Need an Easter treat that is low in sugar but tasty and nutritious?
This carrot cake hemp seed smoothie has the sweetness and spice of carrot cake—but the protein and omega 3s in the hemp seeds make it a nutritious smoothie. It tastes like a carrot cake milkshake. Use maple syrup for kids or if you like natural sugar—or nu-stevia if you are avoiding sugar.
