Hemp Milk July 24, 2010

I enjoy having cereal in the morning, but since I am vegan and anti-processed sugar I have to make my own milk.  I have found that nut milks taste really good, but they require straining with a nut milk bag.  This is fine on occasion, but I find that hemp seed milk is the easiest to make.  Hemp seeds are a great source of Omega 3s & 6s which are hard to find in the Standard American Diet.  They are also a good source of protein.  They are also the ONLY nut or seed that does not have enzyme inhibitors, so it does not need to be soaked AT ALL.  This is a huge plus.  Here is the basic recipe, the thickeners and sweeteners are optional.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup hemp milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • thickener – 2 tbs coconut butter or oil (optional)
  • sweetener – 1 tbs lucuma or yacon powder or honey or 2 dates (optional)

Throw ingredients in a blender and you have hemp seed milk!  I use it in smoothies or in a berry and chopped nut cereal.
