Hemp Milk

 
 
Organic hemp milk is a staple in our home and something I enjoy making!
We add it to our steel cut oats, smoothies, and our daughter Elle drinks it.  
It’s full of nutrients & tasty! 
 

What is Hemp Milk? 

Hemp milk is a completely natural – plant based milk derived from hemp seeds.  The nutty creamy milk is created when the seeds are soaked and ground/blended in water. 

 

Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds:

  • Hemp seeds are rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are a great source of protein and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, and zinc. 
  • Hemp seeds contain all 8 essential amino acids.
  • One glass of homemade hemp milk contains more protein than a glass of cows milk. 
  • Hemp seeds can be consumed raw, cooked, roasted, or in milk form.
  • Hemp seeds may reduce high blood pressure and risk of heart disease. 
  • Aids in digestion.

Ingredients For Hemp Milk Recipe:
