Hemp milk is raw, vegan, gluten free and more nutritious than other milks. It also serves as a base for many other food and skincare recipes.

Ingredients

100g organic hulled hemp seeds

25g organic almonds

1-2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

1 drop organic vanilla extract

Method

Mix ingredients in 250ml water. No need to heat. Blend all ingredients thoroughly using a high powered blender. Add a further 250ml water. Add the cinnamon and vanilla. Blend again.

Chill for at least one hour. Keeps for two to three days.

Optional Ingredients (do not try all together)

1-2 fresh figs

1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom

1 banana or other fresh fruit

1 tbsp carob/cacao powder

1/2 cup carrot juice to 1/2 cup hemp milk

Raw honey or maple syrup with nutmeg

 

Recipe from Healthy Eating Made Possible by Paul Benhaim

 

“Your hemp seeds are simply delicious and satisfying too, and I relish them on my breakfast every morning. They’re also packed with goodness. It’s so silly that they are actually illegal to eat in Australia (and New Zealand) but not so in the rest of the world. However, I’m glad you guys from Hemp Foods Australia are working on that project right now.” [Elizabeth Jewell Stephens, Editor, LivingNow]

 

Both the recipe book and the hemp seeds are available from www.hempfoods.com.au
