Loaded with all kinds of nutrients and super friendly to the environment, Hemp Milk is probably the best non-dairy milk alternative you could go for. Plus, it only takes 2 ingredients and 1 minute of your time to make... Wins all around!
Place the hemp seed hearts, salt, sweetener if using and 1 cup of water in the container of your high-speed blender and blend on high for 30 seconds to a minute, until the mixture is completely smooth and creamy.
Add the rest of the water and process on low speed for a few seconds, until well blended.
Transfer your milk to clean storage containers and keep refrigerated for about a week.
If time permits, let the milk chill completely before using; it will become thicker and creamier as it chills.
Also, be sure to give your milk a good shake before using as it tends to separate.
Hemp milk has a somewhat distinctive and rather unique flavor; it's kind of earthy, nutty and slightly reminiscent of grass. If you're not a fan, try adding a few dates, a little bit of maple syrup or vanilla extract to sweeten it. This really helps alleviate the flavor and make it more palatable, especially for the little ones.
