Alisa Fleming ~ In this turbulent market, not all products will endure. The latest casualty is Hemp Bliss milk alternative from Manitoba Harvest. Perhaps the glut of new milk alternatives caused the declining sales for this allergen-free hemp milk? Maybe tricky regulations are proving to be too much of a headache? Whatever the reason, Manitoba Harvest has opted to discontinue the Hemp Bliss non-dairy hemp milk product line in the U.S. market. However, the company is not closing up shop. They are simply focusing most efforts on their popular hemp protein powder and Hemp Heart (shelled hemp seeds) product lines, and for now, they will continue to sell Hemp Bliss in the Canadian market (pictured below).
Fortunately, for those of us in the U.S. or anyone who prefers homemade, you can easily make your own hemp milk using hemp seeds, and Manitoba has provided a recipe! The recipe takes just 5 minutes to whip up, and the creamy results can be enjoyed on cereal, in smoothies, or to add a little richness in other recipes. See the following post for the recipe: Homemade Non-Dairy Hemp Milk.
