DIY Hemp Milk: Creamy Goodness to Enhance Your Recipes

Hemp Milk is quite possibly the easiest plant based milk to make. If I had known how quick, easy and tasty it was, I would have been making this for years.

My preference was always Coconut Milk (for which we have multiple recipes: Homemade and Cheats Way) but while in Nepal, coconut became difficult (and expensive) to get where as Hemp Seeds were available in abundance.

Hemp Seeds are hugely benefitial to your health and are a great source of Vegan Protein. They have a strong earthy flavour which I enjoy in my tea, it keeps well in the fridge (1-2 days) and is super easy to make.

Ingredients for Hemp Milk:

  • 1x cup Hemp Seeds
  • 4x cups Water
  • Pinch of Himalayan Salt

Making Hemp Milk:

Add hemp seeds, pinch of himalayan salt and 4 cups of filter water into the blender
Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is smooth and creamy
Strain through a fine mesh strainer (or through a nut bag).
If using ‘hulled’ hemp seeds you will have lots of grits from the outer shells. Typically I use hulled and blend them with water twice, then use the remaining ‘grits’ in a smoothie bowl or energy ball.
If using ‘unhulled’ hemp seeds, these have had their outer husks/shells removed and you may find the seeds blend almost completely into the creamy milk on the first blend. If you wanted a more watery milk, just mix with more water to your preference.
Once blended, your hemp milk is ready to use!
You can store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. Be sure to give it a good shake before using, as some separation can occure, although mainly it holds its consistency really well… even in tea and coffee.

Enjoy your homemade hemp milk as a dairy-free alternative in smoothies, cereal, tea, coffee, or any other recipes that call for milk… we often use it in our Vegan Protein Smoothie Bowls.
