Tips And Tricks

Use a high speed blender to ensure all the ingredients are fully incorporated. I like to use my blendtec for this one.

If your dates are firm, soak them in boiling water for a few minutes and feel free to use the date water for added flavor. 

This hemp milk doesn’t need to be strained, but if you don’t like the grainy texture you can pour the milk over a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. 

Feel free to create your own flavors by adding in cacao, strawberries, or vanilla bean paste for a stronger vanilla flavor. 

How To Serve And Store

Serve this hemp milk cold and enjoy in cereal, in your morning cup of coffee, or as a 1:1 replacement in recipes that call for other plant milk or dairy milk.

Taste And Texture

This hemp milk tastes like your average plant based milk, the most similar to almond milk in my opinion. As written, this recipe is not incredibly sweet but you can adjust the sweetness level by adding in more dates and vanilla. 

The texture is smooth and creamy like milk, with just a very small touch of granulated pieces from the hemp hearts. I personally don’t mind this because it also contains lots of nutrients, but if you prefer a smoother milk, then just run the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth.
