Hemp milk is a well-known plant-based substitute to cow milk. The milk is created by using whole hemp seeds. The plant protein in this milk is high and rich with quality minerals and healthy fats. There are tons of benefits associated with hemp milk. Protection from heart diseases and skin benefits in particular are a couple of hemp milk benefits.

The Milk you are Drinking Could be Toxic

If you happen to be a consumer of dairy milk, you might be drinking a liquid that is not doing many favors for your body. According to a recent medical study conducted in Britain, cow’s milk could be a major contributor towards human mortality risks. The same study also claims that drinking dairy milk could raise bone fracture risks in women.

Cow’s milk has numerous alternatives; coconut milk and almond milk are among a few of them. However, the greatest and latest milk present in the market happens to be organic hemp milk. This excellent dairy substitute is highly nutritious and possesses tons of benefits.

As mentioned earlier, hemp milk is a nutritional powerhouse. Preparing it is quite easy as well. If you happen to be some who is mostly busy, eating well balanced and healthy meals that suit your present diet can sometimes become extremely difficult. Most of us diet conscious people prefer to prepare our meals in advance to see through the week with ease. Despite that, there are times when we require nutritious and quick add-ins.

How Does Hemp Milk Taste?

Quite a lot of people who are interested in trying hemp milk ask this question. Most of them do not try it because they are afraid the taste wouldn’t be too good. Surprisingly, hemp milk is really tasty. You can add it to almost any type of diet. It is also suitable for adding nutrition to the foods that we eat every day. Hemp Milk is particularly great for protein shakes. You can even use it as a substitute for the cow’s milk in your cereal. If you are short on time, you can even drink the milk directly with some added honey.

Hemp Milk- Nutritional Benefits

It should be abundantly clear by now that hemp milk is a super food. Digesting it is pretty easy. Plus it tastes great and is rich in nutrients.  Hemp milk contains vital amino acids that are crucial for our bodies, as they do not produce those acids. The milk also has natural chlorophyll, fiber, antioxidants and plant-based fats. All of these things combine to give hemp milk the extra edge that you will not find in regular cow’s milk.

How to Make Hemp Milk

You may find it surprising that making hemp milk is not as difficult as it may seem. Here are the ingredients that you will require:

  • Honey or sweetener
  • Hemp seeds (shelled) 1 cup
  • 3 cups of water
  • A pinch of salt
  • Use organic raw honey or pitted dates to add some flavor in the milk

You are free to add to the quantity of these ingredients if the taste does not satisfy you. Some people add other ingredients as well for adding more flavor, but the one mentioned above are vital.

Once you get all of the ingredients, go to your kitchen and follow these steps:

  1. Pour the cup of shelled hemp seeds inside a blender. Because we are using the shelled seeds, we will not need to strain or soak them once the blending is complete. Using this method is highly recommended as it is simpler and does not create a mess.
  2. Pour some water inside the blender. Following this step is vital for the hemp milk’s thickness. A 3:1 ratio of water to seeds is preferable. Cut down on some water if you want the hemp milk to be thicker. You will be able to determine the perfect ratio and thickness through some trial and error, but it will be worth it.
  3. Drop a pinch of salt for adding some taste. The salt also acts like a preservative for the milk.
  4. Finally, turn your blender on for half a minute and blend every ingredient.

 

That is all you need to do for preparing your hemp milk. Simple isn’t it? One of the best things about it is that it is free from THC, which means that you will not feel the intoxicating effects often associated with weed. Also the milk is free from GMO making it a natural and healthy dietary food.
