Homemade Non-Dairy Hemp Milk

For those of us who can no longer get Hemp Bliss Milk Alternative, Manitoba Harvest shared their simple recipe for homemade hemp milk. Just two little ingredients, with ample room for customization.

Homemade Non-Dairy Hemp Milk

Hemp hearts are simply shelled hemp seeds. They are actually very soft little (tiny, actually) seeds, so no soaking is required. Just blend away! Parents take note, hemp milk is also a very easy way to get some Omega-6 & Omega-3 essential fatty acids into your children’s breakfast.

Dietary Notes & Options: Homemade Hemp Milk

This recipe is naturally vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, soy-free, and sugar-free. That said, hemp isn’t super-sweet. If you want to dress it up a bit, feel free to flavor to taste with your favorite sweetener – we think maple syrup goes nicely. Vanilla extract is also a nice addition – start with 1/4 teaspoon and work your way up, as desired.

For a thicker hemp milk / light cream, reduce the amount of water by 1 to 2 cups. For a flavor variation, that is slightly sweeter and creamier, but not nut-free, you can sub part cashews for some of the hemp seeds.
