Not only is it healthy and tasty, but it requires no overnight soaking of the seeds. You can literally throw everything in a high-speed blender at the last minute and have a creamy, frothy beverage in no time. If you are looking for something fatter and even creamier try this easy cashew milk instead.
Hemps seeds, or otherwise known as hearts in the superfood community, are simply the seeds of the hemp plant aka Cannabis sativa. The same stuff they press to make hemp oil.
No my friends, we won’t be getting high from them as they do not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), instead we can benefit from all their good for you superfood power.

I’ve been making plant milk with hemp since I found this recipe and it is now our most favorite milk. Stocked up on the bulk hemp as well and we are really enjoying all the benefits of this whole food. Thank you for the inspiration, loving this site.
My top choice for homemade plant milk, the easiest seed to work with especially straining is so quick and simple unlike cashews or almonds that can take some time to soak and strain. I’m a hemp girl now, thank you for the inspiration Florentina!
I made the hemp milk and love it cold, but heating for a latte results in a thick and gooey yuck. What am I doing wrong?
Honestly I’m not sure what happened there Jo. I would suspect that since it is a raw product, not strained you would need to whisk it as it warms up so no separation occurs. I will try this myself and report back. ~ Florentina Xo’s
Are the nutrition facts for the whole recipe or a serving? Trying to make this for my son but would like to know the fat and protein and calories as we are trying to get enough in his diet since he’s not eating whole food.
Hi Kylie! The nutrition facts are per serving and the recipe makes 4. You might also like our Cashew Milk which is creamier and has a richer taste. Enjoy! https://veggiesociety.com/cashew-milk-recipe/
