Keeping treats delicious, healthy and allergen-free is a tall order for moms around the world. Especially if one of those allergens is nuts, which are famously one of the most popular offenders. Our Sunbutter Hemp Protein Cups are the answer, as they are nut-free and full of goodness, whilst remaining tasty enough for kids to swallow whole. Maca powder (aka Peruvian Ginseng) is filled with incredible benefits, such as one ounce of it having 133% of the RDI of Vitamin C. In less than an hour you can have 12 of them sitting in the fridge for when the kids come home from school.
