DIY Fresh Hemp Milk + Giveaway

Out of all the types of plant-based milk, hemp milk is one of the easiest to make at home and it’s one of the most nutritious too. Hemp hearts are quite soft so they don’t require any soaking and you don’t need a special high-speed blender to get it smooth. They are a wonderful source of Omega-3’s and are a complete source of protein.

Video Tutorial for Hemp Heart Milk


I wanted to share this recipe ahead of Vegan MoFo because my theme this year is going to be Vegan Cultured Cheese and one of the recipe that I’m planning uses the leftovers from making hemp milk. It’s going to be a delicious, dreamy Vegan Month of Food.

In preparation for this tutorial, I reached out to Manitoba Harvest, a Canadian producer of hemp foods to see if they wanted to be a part of it. They were kind enough to send me a bag AND are providing one to giveaway! So if you want to win a bag of non-GMO Canadian hemp hearts, then make sure you’re subscribed to my channel and leave a comment on the video telling me what you would do with the hemp hearts or making a suggestion on what you think I should do with them. I’ll assign a number to every comment and use a random number generator to pick the winner. Get your comments on or before September 5th!


The giveaway is open to residents of Canada and the USA. But if you don’t live in those countries, don’t fret as I have a couple international givewaways planned for September. Make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel to see all the giveaways! I’m so excited for Vegan MoFo; so many delicious plans and I’m looking forward to all the participating blogs.

  1. 1/2 cup shelled hemp hearts
  2. 5 cups water, divided
  3. 2 tablespoons molasses
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. pinch sea salt
  1. Combine the all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend on high for one to two minutes or until mixture is super smooth.
  3. Strain the hemp milk through a nut milk bag, a jelly bag or a few layers of cheesecloth.
  4. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  5. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for 3 to 5 days. This type of milk can separate over time; just give it a stir before serving.
  1. I love this hemp milk with my coffee, especially with cinnamon and other warming spices.
  2. Don't throw out the hemp heart solids after you strain the milk. You can use it in place of tahini in hummous recipes or to make hemp heart cheeses.

    I just started making my own “milks” and am going to try this tomorrow with breakfast, looks so good!

    I love hemp! I’ve been making hemp milk for a while and love that I can vary the sweetener if I use any at all.
    You can make hemp ranch dressing by using hemp hearts and water at a 1:1 ratio and adding lemon juice, some garlic and onion powder, salt and fresh herbs like thyme and dill. Anyway, have a great Vegan MoFo and I’ll definitely come back for a visit! 🙂

    I love almond milk over soy. Never tried hemp milk, what does it taste like. Can you describe it? Looking for hemp cheese video. Keep up the good recipes.

    I have never made my own but I will now give it a go. Thanks.

    I made it today and I love it! Up till now I was only making almond milk, but hemp milk is delicious too. I will use the pulps for my husband milkshake in the morning. Thank you very much for the recipe!
