Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free, Nut Free
This is a very quick and easy non-dairy milk alternative made with hemp hearts. Hemp is a protein power super star, having one of the most complete protein profiles in the plant food kingdom. Hemp has an earthy-nutty flavor, so if you prefer, you can add any of the options bellow. There is no need to strain this milk if you use hemp seed hearts. You might get a little bit of sediment settling to the bottom after a little while, but that is all part of the fun and goodness.
1/2 cup organic raw hemp hearts
2 cups spring or filtered water
1 inch organic vanilla bean
options: stevia, organic cinnamon, organic orange zest, organic cacao powder, organic cardamom powder
Blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender (like Vitamix) until the hemp hearts are completely broken down (about 2 minutes).
Store the rest of the milk in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
