Screw You High Fructose Corn Syrup! Hemp-Spirulina for Toddlers

My 19 month old loves these. It’s called a “hempsicle”. I am not sure if I’m the first person to create the word, but it is a tasty treat and a great way to get my toddler to eat hemp protein, get his Omega 3-6-9, and some Spirulina. I want him to enjoy a creamsicle style vegan dessert that is packed with nutrients.  And I say, “Screw you high fructose corn syrup in all that popsicle crap marketed to little kids! My baby ain’t buyin it!”

Sun eating hempsicle

Hemp-Spirulina-Mango Creamsicles (You can always had more dates to make it sweeter)

1 c raw hulled hempseeds

2 c water

2 pitted dates

1 tbsp spirulina

3 dried raw organic mango slices

Throw in Vitamix (or something comparable, as I don’t know if other blenders can grind hempseeds finely) and blend for about 2 minutes.

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for about 6 or 7 hours.

    Hope that is day finds you and all your loved ones well. I am so very happy to have found your site. Your work, thought, and passion towards a comprehensive understanding of what true food justice is and should be about is complete act of genius! I will be directing anyone who is interested in these issues to site and your book.
    I thought you would also be interested in some of latest findings regarding spirulina and hope that you decide against its usage and will pass the information along to other mothers and vegans: http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/update-on-spirulina/
    Peace Always

    Could you use hemp protein powder instead?
