Berries and Cream Juice Recipe
• 2 cups blueberries
• 1 1/2 cups water
• 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
• 1 teaspoon maqui berry powder
• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder
• sweetener, to taste
Juice the blueberries. Transfer the fresh juice to a blender and add the water, hemp seeds, maqui berry powder, vanilla, and cinnamon. Blend well, and add stevia (or sweetener of choice) to taste. Use a fine-mesh sieve to strain before serving.
Juice Boost: Use 1 tablespoon acai powder in addition to (or instead of) the maqui berry powder. You can also use 1/2 cup store-bought berry juice of any variety, or use 2 cups strawberries and juice them fresh, in place of the frozen blueberries.
