Hemp Milk – Healthy Alternative to Soy Milk or Dairy

A Healthy Alternative to Dairy Or Soy Milk

Shelled hemp seeds ready to make Hemp milkMany people have tried soy milk or almond milk in their exploration to find alternatives to cow milk. and lately we hear of the amazing power of hemp foods, and the power of hemp nutrition to meet an incredibly wide variety of human health needs.

The seed of the hemp plant is currently illegal to grow in most countries in the world, even though there is no THC in the seeds of the plant. THC is the active compound in marijuana that makes people “stoned”. It is legal, however, to import the seed from Canada and other countries where it legal to grow hemp plants for agriculture, so that we can use this amazing food in our everyday diets.

I’m a big fan of hemp seeds myself, since they are very high on protein, and they have an almost ideal ratio of essential fatty acids for humans, including the elusive “omega 3s” that most people in the western cultures are sorely lacking.

Common Hemp seeds contain more than 23 minerals and trace elements, including powerful blood sugar stabilizing minerals such as chromium.

In his book Fats that Heal, Fats the Kill, Udo Erasmus claims:

Hemp seed is the Number 1 food meant for human consumption. It’s THAT nutritious, and that complete!

You can blend hemp seeds with water, a little Himalaya salt, and/or some sweetener like stevia or honey, and you will have a most fantastic tasting hemp milk. Alternatively, Hemp Seeds can be eaten raw with a spoon, or mixed into a highly-nutritious oak meals and Muesli.

The hulled seed is also very soft, so there is no need for any special processing prior to eating. You can sprinkle hemp seeds on your green salad, or onto your fruit salad (they easily go both ways).

It is well known amongst Raw Foodists that eating too many nuts or seeds can be rather unbalancing, and they often therefore “soak” them for 4-12 hours prior to eating, to deactivate the enzyme inhibitors. Nevertheless, Hemp seeds do not need to be soaked in any way to be completely edible and digestible.

You can find Hemp seeds in many health food stores. I mostly blend the seeds into hemp seed milk smoothies, mixed with raw cacao powder, and some of the various green superfood powders on the market today.

To be more economical, search for the 5 pound bags available from many places online. Store the seeds in the freezer, and they will last for many months.

Some additional blending addition suggestions for making delicious hemp shakes:

  • Add a fresh coconut including the juice and the white coconut meat
  • Add fresh or frozen fruit, such as peaches, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas, etc.
  • Add 5-20 raw organic cacao beans or “cacao nibs” for a chocolaty nutritious treat
  • Add 1-3 tablespoons of raw cacao powder to make a non-dairy chocolate milk. This increases the protein content of the already-high hemp milk, since for every 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder you use, you get 6 additional grams of raw protein.
