hemp milk is expensive. like, $4-5 for one quart.
and recently, the whole foods we normally shop at stopped carrying any sort of hemp milk (blasphemy!!). we kept requesting it. that became awkward. meanwhile, K had mentioned that it’s possible to make hemp milk in a vitamix.
that it was cheaper, even.
so we gave it a try. and folks, its easy, delicious, AND inexpensive.
here’s our recipe:
3.5 cups water
1/2 cup raw hemp seeds (find a store with a bulk section, its really cheap. otherwise you are paying for packaging)
1 tbs honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8-1/4 tsp salt
add it to the vitamix and blend it for about 30 seconds. pour into a jar of some kind, refrigerate, and shake before using. ENJOY!!!
the beauty of making your own is that you can adjust it for your needs. if you like sweeter hemp milk (the recipe is pretty neutral) for cereal but would like something more neutral for cooking its easy to do. also, if you want creamier hemp milk, add less water, if you refer less creamy, dilute it.
