The Recipe & What You Need to Make This Delicious Milk
So here is what you need and feel free to change it up anyway you like. I cannot stress enough that recipes are always adaptable and it is perfectly fine and fun to be creative with them!
1/3 cup hemp hearts
1 – 2 pitted dates
1 tsp of vanilla or 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract * play with this to your liking. Make it YOUR recipe
3 cups water
Throw in your blender and blend and you have milk. 🙂 It’s that easy.
You can add in maple syrup or switch out the dates for maple syrup or have both. You can add in cinnamon. Yesterday I took some of this milk and added it to coconut milk and added more maple syrup and cinnamon and blended and added it to my coffee for a dairy free option and Oh My Goodness is was Soooo good! My kid loved it so much she had 3 small glasses! And she can be picky… just sayin. 🙂
And the health benefits of hemp hearts or seeds are enormous! Here are some of the nutrients:
Hemp seeds contain an impressive array of vitamins and minerals and are especially rich in:
- vitamin E
They are also a good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins, including:
- vitamin B-6
I encourage you to Google to learn more about how amazing hemp hearts are. And dates and maple syrup also. They are great sources of natural sugars that our livers and brains need desperately. You just cannot go wrong with this ‘milk’. EnJOY!
