  • high-speed blender
  • nut milk bag
  • large bowl


  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 3 cups spring water

How to Naturally Sweeten

  • 1 tsp optional: vanilla extract organic
  • 1/4 tsp optional: cinnamon organic
  • 1/4 tsp optional: cardamom organic
  • 1 drop optional: liquid stevia organic


  • Add hemp seeds and spring water into a high-speed blender and blast until well-combined and smooth. Blend together until it's creamy white and no particles are floating in the mixture.
  • Using a nut-milk bag over a medium-sized bowl, strain hemp mixture through the bag and into the bowl. Squeeze and strain as much milk as you can.
  • Discard pulp.
  • Optional if you want to add flavors. Rinse blender again. Then add milk back to the blender and all add your spices. Blend again, and store in a sealed glass container for up to 1 week.


  • Use organic whenever possible.
  • A cheesecloth will not work as well with this seed.  I recommend the nut bag for this milk.
  • Stevia is an option for those who like a low glycemic sweetener.  Make sure the ingredients on the package say Pure Stevia and make sure it's not cut with additives.  The ingredients should be pure and simple.
  • All spices and extracts are optional and should also be organic.  This can be enjoyed plain as well.  I usually make it plain and then add spices later on.
  • Homemade Hemp Milk can be stored in the fridge for up to a week in a sealed jar container.
