Raspberry and lemon, a match made in heaven

Raspberry and lemon, a match made in heaven.  If you have all these ingredients in your kitchen right now I suggest you make this today! If you don’t, then I highly recommend adding them to your shopping list this week.  The tartness of the raspberries and lemons remind me of a raspberry sorbet.  Meaning it’s delicious!!

This makes for a perfect snack when you need a little energy boost or for a sweet tangy treat to fulfil a craving.  It would also make a refreshing treat on a hot summers day.

Because it reminds me of sorbet, I’m imagining you could reduce the amount of water and/or increase the amount of hemp seeds to transform it into a pudding of sorts. That way, you can eat with a spoon instead of drink.  I am sure it would be equally delicious.  Let me know if you give it a try.  Could make for a great dessert.

Raspberry Lemon Hempnut's Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries (or fresh with some ice)
  • 1/3 cup hulled Hempnut's thin (1/2 cm) slice of lemon with peel, or juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 medjool dates
  • pitted 1 cup of water

Combine all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

We eat so many hemp nuts that I buy the naturART brand in bulk in a 500g bag.
