Homemade hemp seed milk2013-04-23
I talked about becoming a health freak in a previous post and I now make almond milk regularly. This evening, I made hemp seed milk for the first time and I have to say, it won’t be the last either. The whole kitchen smells like a joint ;).
As with the nut milk, the proportion here is pretty much whether you want a thick milk or cream or a thin milk which I prefer. I use approx. 1dL of unpeeled hemp seeds to 1L cold water. I like to drink it plain and not add any sweetening agent but you could always kick up a notch with some honey or dates. Enjoy!
Hemp seeds can be bought in health stores. I bought 500g of unpeeled seeds for 49 Swedish crowns!
- 1dL of unpeeled hemp seeds
- 1L cold water
Soak the seeds overnight.
Rinse the seeds thoroughly.
Place both seeds and water in a blender and blend for 20 seconds in a Vitamix or 2-3 minutes in a regular blender.
Strain using a nut milk bag. Discard the pulp.
Will keep in the fridge for 3 days!
