HEMP MILK – Easy to make!


The nutritional benefits of Hemp Hearts & Dairy milk are not the same, but Hemp Hearts have great nutrients and can be turned into a substitute for dairy milk to enjoy on breakfast cereals and used successfully in most recipes calling for milk.

Dairy products do not agree with both of us so for some years now we have been using & enjoying milks made from coconut, almond, oats, soy and now as well hemp hearts!

After reading an article on making hemp milk, I decided to try it, tweak it by adding salt and stevia to make it exactly the way we like it. We still buy almond milk now for Melvin’s breakfast, but for all other recipes using milk, we use hemp milk. I make a small 5 1/2 cup batch and store it in 3 glass jars in the fridge.

This usually lasts 4 or 5 days, but as soon as I am running low I can make another batch in a short time.

I use this milk when cooking rice, millet or quinoa by substituting the water for hemp milk. Any extra of these cooked foods can be put into a small baggie and frozen to add into soups casseroles, stir-frys & more.

On Saturday I wanted to make a fresh batch of Hemp Milk for the weekend so I used the last 2 1/2 cups of hemp milk to make a batch of cinnamon buns. For this dough I milled spelt flour instead of whole wheat and used avocado oil for the fat and honey instead of the sugar.

They are just so soft and moist so I decided this is a recipe to share on the website under “BREADS” I followed the recipe found on page 51 of my EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS cookbook. To view this cookbook, go to my website at winnieswinningways.ca
