Hemp Milk Recipe

HempLatte

I’ve been wanting to make our own milk for a while but it seemed overwhelming. I have no idea why I though that because it is so easy!

I played around with a few variations and this is the recipe I came up with. It tastes great and it’s extremely healthy! Tons of omegas, and a good source of iron, protein, and amino acids.

Coconut oil does have fat, but it’s the kids of fat your body uses immediately, not stores. Coconut fat has actually been proven to help people lose weight, not gain it.

If you like the taste of coconut you can used unrefined oil, but if you don’t want the taste of coconut, use refined.

Ingredients:

6 cups filtered water

1 1/2 cups shelled hemp seeds

2 pitted dates

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla bean

1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions:

Put all the ingredients in a high speed blender (I like Vitamix) and blend until all the ingredients are mixed together thoroughly.

    Hey Elizabeth – how do you store this milk once it is made? Would a Mason Jar work? Also how long will it keep after it has been made?

    Hi Julie!
    It’s good for about 3 to 4 days and a mason jar would be perfect – I usually use a close topped pitcher.
