To Make Hemp Milk
1. Add 1/2 cup of Hemp Seeds and 4 cups of filtered water to a high-speed blender. Blend for about a minute, or until the mixture is well combined.
2. Add a pinch of salt and blend for additional 15 seconds.
3. We prefer a creamy and thicker texture of hemp milk, unstrained with all the goodness of hemp seeds contained. For a smoother consistency you can strain it (cover your pitcher with a nut bag, or a thin towel) .
Hemp Milk can keep up to 5 days refrigerated.
