Beauty News NYC has found Nutiva’s newest super food – Organic Chia Seeds. Packed with fiber, protein, minerals, omega-3 and antioxidants, these seeds have become a new staple to every New York diet.

A one ounce (28 g) serving of chia seeds contains 9 percent of the recommended daily value for protein, 13 percent of oil and 42 percent of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber. Chia is a rich source of essential minerals including phosphorous and manganese as well as calcium and trace amounts of sodium and potassium. Chia seeds also contain healthy antioxidants.

Organic Hemp Seeds are an added staple to the super food family. Packed with protein, Omega-3, and healthy minerals, Hemp Seeds can be added to any shake, smoothie, or salad. Each bag of Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed contains 7.5 grams of Omega-6, 3 grams of Omega-3, 0.6 grams of super omega-6, and 0.3 grams of super omega-3.

Hemp Banana Smoothie:

Nutiva’s Organic Hemp Seed, Banana, Almond Milk, Vanilla Extract

Blend 4 Tbsp of hemp seeds and add 1-2oz of water into a thick cream.
Add a banana, 1 cup of water or almond milk and a dash of vanilla extract and blend again.

This summer why not put a twist on frozen sorbet? Satisfy your sweet tooth with Yonanas and turn your New York kitchen into a gourmet ice cream store. Now you can turn any fruit into ice cream. Start with bananas for potassium, and add berries for antioxidants and nuts for protein. Each classic Yonanas recipe is 100 calories!

Melon Sorbet:

½ C frozen chopped cantaloupe, ½ C frozen chopped honeydew. Let fruit thaw 7-10 minutes.

1. Insert ¼ C slightly thawed frozen cantaloupe
2. Insert ¼ C slightly thawed frozen honeydew
3. Repeat
