Hemp milk, or hemp seed milk, is a plant milk made from hemp seeds that are soaked and ground in water, yielding a beany-nutty cream-flavored substance. There are various options available for sale including organic, non-GMO, and conventional: unsweetened, original, vanilla, and chocolate flavored.

Preparation[edit]

Production of hemp milk requires hemp seeds, water, and a blender. Many recipes call for ground vanilla or vanilla extract to add more flavor, and a type of sweetener. Once all ingredients are blended together some people pour the product over a cheesecloth and strainer to get a smoother and more refined milky texture. The straining process is optional.
