Hemp Milk Happiness!

Ah,the good old hemp seed.. From body butters to cooking recipes, it certainly seems as though hemp is the way to go. I’ve decided to do a little research on Hemp Milk, and what all the fuss is about.

 

What is Hemp Milk?

Hemp milk is a vegan alternative to cow or goats milk and is derived from crushing and soaking hemp seeds in water. It is the norm that hemp seeds are inaccurately associated with marijuana. However, there is no THC in hemp seeds, and can in no way be considered as a drug or illicit product. In other words, NO, this will not make you high! Too bad..

It does, however, have other benefits which I think everyone should be made aware of.

 

Health benefits of Hemp Milk

 

  • Contains 0% sugar
  • Contains 0% cholesterol
  • 100% Gluten-free
  • Contains Vitamins A and E that improves skin health
  • Contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids to boost cognitive performance.
  • Contains healthy amounts of Potassium to improve cardiac health
  • Boosts immune system
  • Improves bone density and lowers the risk of Osteoporosis

 

Making your own Hemp Milk

 

So I figured I might as well share the recipe for home made Hemp Milk, as this is not available in all countries and shops. Enjoy!

Step 1:

Mix 1/2 cup of hemp seeds and 4 cups of water in a blender.

Step 2:

Blend thoroughly for 1-2 minutes

Step 3:

Strain the mixture through a dishcloth into your preferred container/jug.

Step 4: 

Voila! Store in refrigerator and consume within 2-3 days for best results.
