Onnit hasn’t officially said this is its 2014 Fourth of July sale, but it’s safe to say that this will be all that’s offered, since the sale starts today and extends to the end of July 9th.
All Hemp Force products–that’s the Hemp Force ChocoMaca and Hemp Force Vanill-Acai protein powders and the Hemp Force Vanill-Acai bars–are now on sale at a savings of 15% off. If you buy the twin pack of protein powders you save even more, around 25% off the regular retail price.
As I said, this is likely the only sale Onnit Labs will have this Fourth of July long weekend. There’s no coupon code to enter, the prices have simply been reduced on the website. The sale is on right now and goes until 11:59PM PST on Wednesday, July 9, 2014.
I’ve shared a couple Onnit Hemp Force recipes on this blog in the past, but they’ve all been for shakes that you drink. After checking out Onnit’s official blog, I uncovered a Hemp Force recipe, but not for something that you drink. This particular recipe is for something Onnit calls Hemp Force Power Balls!
My favorite type of recipe is a no-bake recipe, and that’s exactly what this one is, though you will need to use the stove briefly. Using only six ingredients, the recipe is also vegan, gluten-free, packed with protein, and doesn’t require you to add any sugar. You might even have all the ingredients in your cupboards already.
- a half cup of creamy peanut butter
- one tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil
- six scoops of Hemp Force protein powder
- a half cup of almond milk
- a half cup of coconut flakes
- three cups of brown rice cereal
To prepare, you’ll need to grab a large saucepan and melt the peanut butter and coconut oil together. Using a separate bowl, combine the almond milk and protein powder and mix it into a thick paste. Then, add the protein powder mixture to the saucepan and mix again. Next, fold in the coconut and cereal and mix everything together. With your hands, roll the mixture into balls measuring one to two inches in width. That’s it! Store in an airtight container and eat them before working out or to curb your appetite between meals.
Obviously you can use whatever brand of peanut butter or unrefined coconut oil (though Onnit does have its own) and you can substitute brown rice cereal for Rice Krispies and the almond milk for regular milk if it’s of no issue to you, but the one ingredient that must remain is Onnit Hemp Force protein powder. This is because unlike other hemp protein powders, Hemp Force actually tastes good. If you make this recipe using any other type of protein powder, it likely won’t turn out too well so keep that in mind.
Again, this recipe was originally posted on the Onnit Blog, so all credit goes to them.
Out of nowhere Onnit just dropped it’s latest product: Hemp Force Bars. These protein bars combine everything you love about Hemp Force protein powder condensed into a bar form. Not everyone has the time to eat and drink a shake before working out. You could be hitting the gym after work and not have access to a blender, or maybe you don’t want to carry around a jug of protein powder with you. That’s where the Hemp Force protein bars can help. They are infinitely more portable, just as delicious, and you can buy them either by the box or individually. I haven’t had a chance to try them yet, but they pack 10g of protein and 3g of fiber and currently come in a vanilla chai flavor. I love Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Tea, so I’m hoping these Hemp Force protein bars are just as delicious.
