Hemp milk is such a delicious and nutritious alternative to your favorite nut milk!

Almond milk is a staple in our house. We always go for the unsweetened vanilla and it’s so versatile to have in your fridge. Although I buy multiple cartons of almond milk each week, I’m always experimenting on my own with different non-dairy beverages.

Lots of nut milks require hours of pre-soaking and straining. But, the great thing about making dairy free milk with hemp hearts is you don’t need to do either soaking or straining. It only takes 5 minutes to make in your blender!

Are hemp hearts healthy?

If you’re a bit of a nutrition nerd, like me, google “hemp hearts benefits” and enjoy!! Hemp seeds contain over 30% fat and are rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).

They also contain gamma-linolenic acid, which has been linked and have been linked to several health benefits like reducing heart disease, helping skin disorders, etc. etc. 

I love them most because they’re a great plant-based protein source, with more than 25% of their total calories from high-quality protein.

So, while hemp milk tastes delicious, it’s also incredibly nutritious. And it takes less than five minutes to prepare (and probably drink if you’re like me).

What is hemp milk?

It’s a non-dairy beverage made my blending together hemp hearts and water. You can add sweetener and flavor depending on your preference, but that’s hemp milk in a nut shell!

How to Make Hemp Milk:

Add the hemp hearts, peanut butter (optional), water, vanilla, agave (optional), and sea salt to your blender.

You can just make plain hemp milk by blending just the hemp hearts and water, but you know me. I find an excuse to put peanut butter in everything 🙂

Blend for about 1 minute!

Hemp milk is best served cold, so transfer it to a mason jar with a lid and store in the fridge until you are ready to drink it. Make sure to give it a shake before serving!
