Hemp Milk has a rich and nutty flavor to it & it has huge health benefits. Hemp seeds provide a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and contain all the essential amino acids that the body does not make & we must get from our diet. Pretty amazing right?
So why not make some hemp milk as a way to easily enter the seeds into your diet. I use my hemp milk in my masala chai tea, or with my decaf coffee that I home roast. I've also used it to make a baked french toast dish and the nutty flavor was great in it!
Without further ado, the recipe for homemade hemp milk is below
3/4 cup hemp seeds
4 cups water
2 Tbsp honey (optional)
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
1 tsp organic almond or vanilla extract (optional)
Place all contents into your blender
Blend on high for about 90 seconds
For a more commercial grade milk pour through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag.
Homemade hemp milk can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 days. I choose to store mine in a mason jar.
