Have you ever wondered how to make hemp milk?
Now, I love making my own plant milks but I'll be the first to admit that they can be PRICEY. Particularly if you're using nuts like cashews, walnuts or almonds, making your own nut and seed milks can become prohibitively expensive.
That's why I love using hemp seeds! They're not cheap exactly (are any nuts/seeds?), but they can be much more affordable than other nuts and seeds and they make a really creamy milk.
I buy organic hemp seeds from Nut Hut here in Canada (this post isn't sponsored - they're just a great company who care about where they source their seeds/nuts and are competitively priced I find!).
Hemp milk is really interesting - it has a specific nutty flavour but it's creamy and rich and is ideal in cereal, porridge/oatmeal and in some hot drinks.
And this recipe is so easy - all you need are hemp seeds, water and a blender and you can create a smooth dairy-free milk that's ready in seconds! It's perfect in hot drinks like this Easy Rose Latte.
WHY YOU SHOULD TRY HEMP MILK
Easy - My favourite thing about hemp milk is that it's really easy. Unlike other seeds and nuts, hemp seeds don't need to be soaked to make their nutrients more bioavailable, so there is literally just one step to make this milk - blend it!
Healthy - Hemp is also really good for you. The seeds are high in omega-3, -6, healthy fats and iron, to name but a few nutrients.
Fast - It's incredibly fast to make. Like, 60 seconds fast. There's no straining or sieving needed afterwards, so you just blend the ingredients and you're done!
Delicious - Once you get used to the unique taste, hemp milk is smooth and creamy, making it perfect in cereal. You can totally customize it to your own liking as well - try making a chocolate variation using cacao, or why not flavour it with berries?
