Hemp Milk

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.

Love this recipe?  Use hemp milk differently than I do?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments section below.
