Here is an ingredient list for making hemp milk at home:
1 cup of raw, shelled hemp seeds
4 cups of fresh water

Sweetener such as maple syrup or honey (optional)
Hemp milk is a delicious and nutritious dairy-free alternative to traditional cow's milk. It is also incredibly easy to make at home, and requires just a few simple ingredients. In this blog post, we will show you how to make hemp milk in just a few easy steps.
Step 1: Soak the Hemp Seeds
The first step in making hemp milk is to soak your hemp seeds in water. This will help to soften them and make them easier to blend. To do this, simply add one cup of hemp seeds to a bowl and cover them with water. Let the seeds soak for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible.
Step 2: Blend the Hemp Seeds
Once your hemp seeds have soaked, it's time to blend them. Drain the soaking water from the seeds and add them to a blender with 4 cups of fresh water. You can also add a pinch of salt or sweetener, such as maple syrup or honey, if desired.
Blend the mixture on high for 1-2 minutes, until the hemp seeds have completely broken down and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Strain the Hemp Milk
Next, you'll need to strain the hemp milk to remove any bits of seed or fiber. You can do this by pouring the mixture through a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or fine mesh strainer. Be sure to squeeze the bag or cloth to extract as much milk as possible.
Step 4: Store and Enjoy
Once you've strained your hemp milk, transfer it to a jar or bottle and store it in the refrigerator. Your homemade hemp milk will last for 3-4 days in the fridge.
You can enjoy your hemp milk on its own, or use it as a dairy-free substitute in recipes that call for milk. It's also delicious in smoothies, coffee, and tea.
In conclusion, making your own hemp milk at home is simple, easy, and a great way to enjoy a delicious and nutritious dairy-free alternative to cow's milk. With just a few basic ingredients and a blender, you can make a batch of creamy, flavorful hemp milk that will last for several days. So why not give it a try today?
