In this segment from Organic Living TV with the Hippy Gourmet our very own Gastronaut and sustainability reporter Chris Nolder makes an awesome Freestyle Smoothie using the BlendTec Total Blender. Chris also features the delicious Pacific Foods Hemp Milk in this smoothie, highlighting all of the incredible benefits that Hemp milk has for the human body, while also being a delicious substitute for dairy. The BlendTec Blender works like a charm and can create a whole menu of quick and easy dishes (which we plan on featuring a lot in upcoming episodes).
