Happy Hemp Milk

Ingredients

Unsweetened:

  • 1 c raw shelled hemp seeds
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3 c filtered water

Sweetened:

  • Unsweetened recipe +
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sunflower lecithin (optional)
  • 3-6 pitted dates, 2-3 T pure maple syrup, or other sweetener

Chocolate:

  • Sweetened recipe +
  • 2 T cacao powder, plus more to taste

Strawberry:

  • Sweetened recipe +
  • 2 C fresh strawberries, plus more to taste

Instructions

  1. Throw the hemp seeds, water, and salt in your blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until the seeds are completely pulverized. Use whole milk to maximize nutrition. Or strain for a smoother, more commercial-style milk for use in recipes.

  2. To strain, place a nut milk bag or knee-high piece of sheer nylon hosiery over the opening of a glass bowl, jar or jug. Pour the milk into the bag, twisting the bag closed, and gently squeezing it to pass the liquid through.

  3. Rinse your blender container, and pour the strained milk back in. Add the vanilla, sweetener, and any flavorings, and blast again, until smooth and creamy.

  4. Store the milk in a sealed container in the fridge. Hemp milk will keep for about 3 days in a very cold fridge.
