Hemp Milk


Hemp Milk is a superior nutritional substitute to dairy and soy milk. It's fast to make, delicious to drink! I use it over oatmeal, as a smoothie base, dairy substitute, or as a quick pick me up.

The following recipe is adapted from Jennifer Cornbleet's cookbook: Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 people. Click here to visit her site and sign up for her free e-book on How to go raw for a day.

Yield: 2 cups, 4 servings

Hemp milk takes only minutes to make, since hempseeds don’t need to be soaked. Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1/2 cup hempseeds, unsoaked

  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or 2 dates

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

  • pinch of sea salt

Add the above ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Add ice for a cold and frosty milk. I place the Hemp Milk in a 20 oz glass mason jar and it keeps up to 5 days refrigerated.

If you are on a juice fast and taking medication this is a great milk to aid in the digestion of your medication. It is very high in protein 3 Tablespoons =11 grams. It also boasts 10 amino acids and the only edible food containing GLA --and a healthy anti-inflammatory 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fat. GLA is an especially beneficial type of omega-6 fat called GLA (gamma linolenic acid). GLA is a direct building block of good anti-inflammatory hormones. Unfortunately, this special omega-6 fat is not typically found in foods (in fact I think hemp seeds are the only edible food source of GLA.)
