Where do toddlers get vegan protein? Watch the video below to see one of many fun and nutritious possibilities!
2/3 c to 1 c of hemp seeds. I like 1 c to make it creamier and thicker but you can do 2/3c if you want it to be lighter. I use Organic hemp seeds from Nutiva
Pint of Strawberries
1c of water
1/2 tsp of raw ground vanilla bean.
4 ice cubes
3 pitted dates (more if you want it to be sweeter)
Directions: in a high quality blender (you need a high quality one to ground the hemp seeds finely and smoothly. I used a Vitamix) until smooth (about 1- 1.5 minutes). Pour into ice cream machine.

If you used 1 c of hempseeds that ice cream has about 35-40g of protein in it. WOW!
