Hemp is a quick plant-based milk to prepare because, unlike almond or oat, it doesn’t need to be soaked overnight.  Hemp seeds (hulled hemp nuts) are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, all 10 essential amino acids, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, vitamin A and magnesium.  I find the taste a little grassy, so I use half-hemp and half-hazelnuts (also no need to soak) – both are very convenient and quick. Drink it on its own, add a little sweetener or spice for a healthy pick-me-up, or a good sprinkling of chia seeds to create an incredible breakfast pudding.

hemp milk

ingredients 

1 cup hemp seeds

3 cups filtered water

preparation 

1.  Rinse hemp seeds well and place in a blender with 3 cups filtered water, then blend on high for 1 minute.

2.  Place the nut bag or cloth over a wide-mouth jug and pour in the blended mixture.

3.  Strain the milk until only the pulp is left.  Use your hand to squeeze out the last of the milk.  Pour into a sterilized glass jar.

Homemade milk does separate, so be sure to give your milk a very good shake before using.  The milk keeps for about three days in an air-tight container in the fridge.
