Almond-Hemp Mylk

This “milk” is a pillar of my family’s diet. We even used this recipe when transitioning my kids off breast milk. Hemp seeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acid, essential to a growing child’s (and adults!) brain and nervous system. Hemp is also a “complete protein,” containing all 9 essential amino acids.

Just like a majestic tree can grow from one seed, think of each hemp seed as the carrier of your tree of life: high in fiber and rich in nutrients that boost your brain, nervous system, weight loss, heart strength, and so much more. Drink up—it’s time to blossom!

Use it as a foundation for smoothies, enjoy it as a super healthy glass of mylk, or simply use it to replace whenever you use cow’s milk. It will last about 3 days in an airtight glass container.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almonds, ideally soaked overnight
  • ½ cup raw hemp seeds, ideally soaked overnight
  • 3 ½ cups filtered water, divided (or 1 ½ cups filtered water and 2 cups of coconut water)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (I prefer to use 3 drops of Medicine Flower Vanilla)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
  • 1 tablespoon cold-pressed coconut oil
  • 1 pitted date (optional)
  • 1 frozen banana (optional)

Directions:

  1. Soak almonds and hemp seeds overnight separately in a large bowl. In the morning, strain this to get rid of the excess water.
  2. In your blender, add the soaked almonds and hemp seeds and 1 ½  of filtered water. Blend at a high speed.
  3. After thoroughly blending, pour the nut mylk mixture through a cheesecloth or nut bag strainer to filter (strain the cloth inside out, as it’s easier to discard contents left in the nut bag when done).
  4. Place the filtered nut mylk in the blender again and add the remaining 2 cups of filtered water (or coconut water), vanilla, sea salt, coconut oil, and optional date and/or the frozen banana.
  5. Blend on high until you have a smooth, creamy texture.
  6. Place in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  7. Cheers and drink to your health!

To really power up the incredible health benefits of this mylk, add in a scoop of Acid-Kicking Plant-Based Vanilla or Chocolate Protein! Burn fat, fight cravings, improve brain and heart health, boost energy, and a whole lot more while drinking something absolutely delicious! It really doesn’t get any better!
