Vanilla Bean Hemp Milk


Holiday time, oh holiday time. Why must you always be so chilly? I can’t take it. I can’t take it I say. I think I need to get away. Far, far away to somewhere hot and sunny. I think I’ll go to Jamaica tomorrow. Hmmm. Yep, that’s what I’ll do.

So while I pack my bags, I think I’ll sip on a little warm vanilla bean hemp milk and perhaps munch on some pumpkin pie muffin tops. You get the milk today, the cookies on Thursday.

Now, I am sure by now you are aware of my opinion of dairy milk. Like the kind that comes out of a cow’s udders. Not for me. Never really was, but the thought of that phlegmy throat thing and the cowwy after-taste, not for me.

Here is why:

Instead, why not go for the easiest milk to make of all. Hemp milk. So easy because you don’t have to strain this one out. Just blend on high and the omaga 3 rich seeds just dissolve, leaving behind a delicious creamy milk.

You want it warm? Either blend longer and let the blender heat it up, or use warm water before blending, or blend with whatever water you chose and heat it up over the stove on a low heat (you don’t want to boil this goodness).

    I’m with you on the dairy. I never liked cow’s milk – the throat coat was just plain gross.
    I’d say my favorite non-dairy milk is full-fat coconut milk mixed with some water.

    ugh I’m with you on the yucky milk after taste and coated throat yucky!! My milk of choice is hemp or rice! I have never made my own but this seems easy enough to try!! thanks for sharing

  3. Patti says:

    Pumpkin pie muffin tops, yum. Do you have a receipe?

    NEVER cared for milk. My “milk” of choice is almond. I’ve converted several folks….!

    Thank you.

    I’m with you on the hemp milk. When I need milk (usually when I’m baking and a recipe calls for a milk), it’s so quick and simple to blend up! And when I think of it, I love to soak cashews for cashew milk – it doesn’t need straining with a nut milk bag, and yields a delicious and creamy (but more expensive) milk.

  5. Erika says:

    I do like cow’s milk but I also appreciate non-dairy milks too. :) This one sounds delicious. One question – when you use vanilla extract in this recipe, do you notice the taste of the alcohol in the final product?

  6. Jennifer R. says:

    yikes, I always hated cow milk as a kid — the milk would get warm and I couldn’t leave the table until I drank it (no, never made that rule with my kids!!).
    Let’s see… I’ve bought rice milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, and almond milk — it gets expensive!
    I used to be so intimidated about making my own. But with the VitaMix it is oh so easy!! Now I make cashew milk, almond milk and hemp milk. soooo good! Need to go soak some more nuts now… :)

      The vitamix might be expensive but it really does pay for itself when used in the many ways we love to use it.

  7. Sarah says:

    Mmm. I love this idea. I love my nut milks, but I’m a very impulsive eater and by the time I soak and blend, I often just let it languish in the fridge. I’m also 8 moons pregnant and the omega 3’s are much appreciated. Thanks for your support as always.

  8. Susan Ho says:

    I made Hazelnut a few weeks ago and it was sooooooo good! Haven’t tried hemp milk yet. Definitely need to try it.

  9. Hayley says:

    I’ve never tried hemp milk, but I’ve had my fair share of almond milk. And back in the day, I used to use soy milk. I’ve never been a straight up milk drinker, but I would pour (lactaid) milk in cereal as a kid, then switched to non dairy alternatives. Making your own at home is so easy and SO worth the 2 minutes it takes to make it.

    Mmm, mmm I love hemp milk! This is why I need a Vitamix, it’s just not quite the same in my Magic Bullet. :) My favorite milks are coconut, almond and hemp, of course!

    Ahhhh, such a long coupla weeks I haven’t been able to write you all a hello, so:


    Meghan, thank you so so much for another easy recipe. I’m so spoiled by this site that I can’t even follow any other recipes any more. Everything else looks to arduous. Yours are so short and sweet. Going to try the hemp milk right now. Perfect – have a safe and luxurious time in St. Lucia!!!!

    Lots of love,

    Odelia :-)

    I mean too arduous (oops).
