Strawberry chocolate hemp squares

Based on this recipe. This is not a particularly low cost recipe in general, but it used ingredients I had on hand, so it was low cost to me.

  • 1 1/2 cups shelled hemp seeds
  • 2 cups strawberries (mine were frozen and thawed)
  • 1/2 cacao nibs (I’d increase this by a bit if I made it again)
  • 1/3 cup xylitol
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (melt over low heat till liquid)

Method:

  1. Soak the hemp seeds for 30 minutes then strain and discard the water.
  2. In a blender, blend the cacao nibs until they become a powder.
  3. Add the xylitol and continue blending until it is powdered.
  4. Add the hemp seeds, strawberries, water, vanilla, and salt and blend until smooth.
  5. Taste – I found it sweet enough, but if you don’t you can add stevia or another sweetener if needed to sweeten to your taste.
  6. Add the coconut oil and continue blending until very smooth.
  7. Transfer to a baking dish and refrigerate overnight.
  8. At this point, I put soy milk in the blender to pick up the mixture that had stuck to the sides. It made a good smoothie!
  9. Cut into squares.
