DIY Homemade Hemp Milk

Print

Hemp milk, made from hemp seeds, provides a great non-dairy alternative and can also be used if your are lactose intolerant or eating nut-free. It is quick and easy to make, since hemp seeds do not require soaking, and it is nutty and creamy in taste. It is also a rich source of omega 3’s and protein, containing all 10 essential amino acids.

 

All it entails is combining hemp seeds, water, a couple dates for sweetness, some vanilla, a touch of cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a high-speed blender until smooth. Then, strain through cheesecloth, squeeze, and enjoy!

 

Your coffee will never be the same.

  • Servings: Makes 4 cups

Ingredients

1 cup hemp seeds

4 cups water (preferably filtered)

2-3 Medjool dates (pitted)

2 teaspoons vanilla bean powder (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)

1 teaspoons cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, until smooth and fully liquefied.
  2. Using a separate bowl that is big enough to contain the liquid, and a nut milk bag or cheesecloth,* strain your hemp milk into the bowl.**
  3. Squeeze until all the liquid is out and the only thing left in the nut bag or cheesecloth is the hemp seed fiber, which can be discarded.
  4. Refrigerate & store in an airtight container for ~3-4 days.

 

*You can line a mesh strainer or sieve with the cheesecloth to help contain it.

**I find it’s easier to do this in batches instead of pouring the entire contents into the bag at one time.
