Hemp seeds have a rich, nutty flavor, similar to sunflower seeds. Hemp seed nuts actually contain more high-quality protein (6 grams per tablespoon) than beef or fish! Hemp is also really good for boosting your immune system, helping to build strong bones and even helps grow strong nails, hair and great for your skin, muscles and connective tissues.
Vanilla Hemp Milk
makes 4 cups or one large mason jar
1 1/2 cups shelled raw hemp seeds
2 1/2 cups filtered water
1/4 tsp raw vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional. I love cinnamon!)
Blend and enjoy.
Will keep in fridge for up to 3-4 days.
This milk came out frothy and thick and oh so yummy. When I poured in in my tea, I had a thick foamy top, which I love. You can sweeten with 2-3 pitted dates instead if you would like, or make chocolate hemp milk by adding a tablespoon or two of raw cacao. I would even think adding some coconut milk to this would be yummy as well!
