Post Workout Smoothie with Hemp Seeds (High or Low Potassium)

Post Workout Smoothie with Hemp Seeds (High or Low Potassium)

Here are two quick and healthy smoothies. Both have hemp seeds – which I find gives them a fuller flavor and adds some protein and fiber to the drink. If you are on a low potassium diet, make sure to only drink #2. They are delicious. Enjoy. #ChangeYourBuds from a sugar or high fat smoothie to one of these.
