8 Tasty & Healthy Hemp Protein Powder Recipes
Protein powder. That’s the stuff that comes in big tubs and is used by muscle men in the gym, right? Wronggg. With the rise of vegan and vegetarian diets (which we at Good Hemp are all here for, by the way) protein is becoming ever more important. We all need enough of it to ensure our bodies have the power to perform healthy cell growth and repair.
And guess what? Hemp protein powder is one of the very best options out there. It’s easy to digest (unlike soya), it’s vegan (unlike whey) and is a complete source of protein, which means it contains all 20 amino acids (including the 9 that your body can’t produce itself). And you don’t have to be a gym bunny to make the most of it. You can down it in a shake before a HIIT class if that’s your style, but hemp protein is just as effective – and even more delicious – when baked into a batch of brownies. Let us know if we’ve missed your favourite way of making hemp protein powder recipes and tag us on Instagram @GoodHemp.
1. Hemp Protein in Smoothies and Shakes
Okay, so this is perhaps an obvious choice, but there’s a reason people the world over are mixing hemp protein powder into shakes. What easier – or tastier – way to make sure you’re getting a morning fix than mixing hemp protein powder in a smoothie along with fresh fruit and veg? Try our super berry smoothie bowl or favourite hemp peanut butter smoothie – so simple and so delicious.
2. Hemp Protein in Porridge
Everyone’s favourite winter warmer, porridge is revered the world over for its slow release of energy. But how about mixing a tablespoon of hemp protein powder in with your oats for an extra breakfast time boost? Top it off with honey and cinnamon, of course, to complete this hemp protein powder recipe.
3. Hemp Protein in Pancakes
Get your protein in at breakfast. That way if anyone asks “how do you get protein if you don’t eat meat”, you can simply refer to your morning meal. (Take that, Grandma). We love these protein pancakes by Romy London.
4. Hemp Protein in Waffles
With hemp protein waffles, we’ve strayed away from breakfast and into the realm of brunch. When you’ve got a little extra time at the weekend, give Madeleine Shaw’s hemp protein powder recipe a whirl. She suggests serving her sweet potato and hemp waffles alongside soft-boiled eggs, avocado and miso mushrooms. If you’re vegan just ditch the eggs and it’s equally appetising.
5. Hemp Protein in Cupcakes
Beyond the breakfast and brunch game, there are lots of ways hemp protein can be used to boost your favourite baked treats. Take these sticky toffee cupcakes for example, made with dates, cashew caramello and vegan cream cheese. They’re the perfect hemp protein powder recipe with coffee made with Good Hemp Barista Milk (if you don’t mind us making the suggestion…)
6. Hemp Protein in Protein Bars
Don’t get caught hungry while on the go – make your very own protein bars with this hemp protein recipe and carry them around with you instead! We’ve see lots of different options for these, crammed with nuts and seeds and yummy things like peanut butter. We love these hemp and chocolate bars by The Protein Chef.
7. Hemp Protein Tart
Apart from our mission to make hemp a kitchen staple across the world, we’re also dedicated to debunking the myth that vegans can’t do desert. With this chocolate tart – packed full of hemp protein and topped with raspberries – the proof is very much in the pudding (please excuse the pun).
8. Hemp Protein in Brownies
The original after-school treat, brownies can be given a healthy boost with this hemp protein powder recipe. These light and fluffy hemp brownies are made from a blend of Good Hemp raw protein and pure protein powders and contain a whopping 8g of the good stuff!

Who wants to be able to enjoy a MILKSHAKE anytime of the day? Yep…even for breakfast.
Meet my new favorite easy Strawberry Milkshake Recipe! This recipe is very thick and creamy similar to traditional milkshakes, except that THIS one all vegan and much healthier! It’s perfect for breakfast, snack-time, or dessert, and makes for the perfect healthy and easy vegan Valentine’s Day treat!
What Makes This Strawberry Milkshake Recipe Healthy?
Traditional milkshakes are made with ice cream.
Instead, this strawberry milkshake recipe gets its sweetness from the use of freshly frozen strawberries and bananas. Using frozen fruit also gives this vegan milkshake that thick and creamy ice-cream like texture.
Hemp seeds provide a great source of nutrients and contain the following:
- Complete source of protein and contain all the essential amino acids
- Essential fatty acids
- Minerals & Vitamins
I love getting my nutrients from a variety of different sources and therefore try to incorporate hemp seeds in my meals every week. I love sprinkling it on things like salads, breakfast toasts, protein bowls, pasta, and blending it into smoothies.
A few years back I enjoyed different blender nice-creams with added hemp seeds, so knew that they’d also taste great and add a certain creaminess when blended up into simple drinks, such as this easy strawberry milkshake recipe!
How To Make This Vegan Milkshake Recipe – Step by Step
You can easily make this healthy strawberry milkshake recipe with your kids with just 5 simple ingredients:
- frozen strawberries
- frozen bananas
- hemp seeds
- non-dairy milk
- vanilla extract
Blending frozen fruit along with hemp seeds gives this recipe that ultra thick, rich, and creamy texture. But you can just as easily add fresh fruit and a few ice cubes if you’re running short on time.
To make this fun pink vegan drink, simply blend all 5 ingredients and enjoy…that’s it!
If your kids are anything like mine, they’re hungry as soon as they come home from school. Instead of their typical green smoothie or almond milk, surprise them with this Strawberry Milkshake Recipe! They’ll not only love you for it, but they’ll be full and fueled for the rest of the afternoon! This is the part where I secretly have a grin on my face, knowing how many hemp seeds are in one glass.
Even my husband, who’s always loved traditional milkshakes, loves this recipe.
