Incredibly Easy & Healthy Hemp Seed Milk

Try this Incredibly Easy & Healthy Hemp Seed Milk which is a homemade, raw and vegan recipe. Hemp seeds are an ideal superfood for a raw food or vegan diet due to their high protein and essential fatty acid content. This recipe is made from hemp seeds can be used over a bowl of fruit, in smoothies and shakes, or enjoyed on its own, just like regular dairy milk or any of your other favorite non-dairy milk substitutes such as soy milk or almond milk.



Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup/80g  hemp seeds
  • 3-4 cups/700-800g of water (use less water for thicker, creamier milk!)
  • 3 whole dates, pitted (optional // for sweetness // or 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa or cacao powder for “chocolate milk” (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh berries for “berry milk” (optional)

    Method:

    1. Add hemp seeds, water, dates and any additional add-ins (optional) to a high-speed blender or a Nutribullet. Top with lid and cover with a towel to ensure it doesn’t splash. Blend for about 1 minute or until the mixture seems well combined.

    2. Pour over a large mixing bowl or pitcher covered with a nut milk bag, a very thin towel, or a clean T-shirt to strain it.
    3. Transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate. Will keep in the refrigerator up to 5 days (sometimes more). Enjoy cold (and shake well) for best results. It’s delicious straight from the jar, in smoothies, with granola, or in baked goods!
