How to Make Hemp Milk
Hemp hearts (also known as “shelled hemp seeds” or “shelled hempseed”) are a rich source of nutrition, putting them in the “superfoods” category. Hemp hearts typically contain 33 percent protein, 9 percent omega-3 essential fatty acids, and are an excellent source of iron, vitamin E and GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), an Omega-6 fatty acid.
Omega fatty acids are essential because human bodies cannot make them on their own, which means we need to get these good fats from our diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly beneficial to the brain, skin, joints and heart and Omega-6, such as GLA, is important to hair, skin and bone health; and regulates metabolism and the reproductive system.
The protein profile in hemp hearts makes them one of the densest sources of plant protein, which can be of significant benefit to vegetarians, athletes and anyone looking to add a healthy source of protein to their diet.
I switched my coconut creamer for this frothy milk and I am so in love. This milk is dairy free vegan and you only need few ingredients.
- 1/3 of a cup of hemp hearts
- 2 cups of water.
- Blend for about 1 minute.
- Store it in a jar up to 4 days.
*You can also add vanilla extract or your favorite sweetener, I like it just like that.
