Hulled hemp seeds (hearts) are readily available in most health food shops and online. Bought milk, which sits on the shelf, has additives to keep it safe such as Acidity Regulator (Dipotassium Phosphate), Emulsifier (Sunflower Lecithin), Stabiliser (Gellan Gum), Sea Salt.). The rest, which is the base of the milk, = water and hemp seed base (4%).
If you make it yourself, it doesn't have these as it is stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. It is so easy to make so I had a go. There are various recipes 1/2 cup hulled hearts to 2 or 4 cups of water or 1 cup of seeds to 3 cups of water. I decided to try 1/2 cup hearts to 2 cups of water. Some add vanilla extract and/or maple syrup/one date, a pinch of salt. Just the hearts and water were put into the large container of my blitzer:
Next time I make it might try 2/3rds cup of hearts to 2 cups of water. Alternatively cashew nut milk might get made.
I love cows milk but like to try alternatives, especially in my smoothies, porridge etc. All part of my better healthy eating regime!
