How To Make Hemp Milk

Homemade hemp milk is rich, creamy, and just like almond milk, makes a great plant based alternative to dairy milk.

And I just love how easy it is to make.  It’s even easier then almond milk, because there is no soaking or straining involved.

Simply add the hemp seeds to the blender with some filtered water and flavor boosters, and in less then 60 seconds, you will have homemade hemp milk.  How cool is that?

Try using your hemp milk in smoothies, oatmeal, or on top of your cereal.  Really, you can use it anywhere you would use milk.

Note:  hemp milk only lasts about three days in the fridge, so working in small batches is best.
