Want to eat #EatSussex but need a dairy free alternative to milk? We’ve got you covered! With hemp seeds grown over in Arundel, West Sussex, by Vitality Hemp, this plant based #EatSussex milk is creamy, earthy tasting and highly nutritious.
And, the best part? It’s so easy to make!
1/2 cup of hulled or unhulled hemp seeds
2 cups of filtered water (see added info below – you can add water to suit your needs)
A blender (if you don’t have a high speed blender, soak your hemp seeds for a few hours or overnight for a finer blend)
(You can add a teaspoon of raw Sussex honey to sweeten. If you’re only partially #EatSussex, a medjool date and some vanilla powder!)
(16/09/18 – I reposted this with 4 cups water, which I’ve now deleted. It’s delicious but not very stable in tea and separates – using 2 cups is better though much creamier – like whole milk) – use 4 cups of water if you are using this for porridge or cereal.
NB: I also added a dash of vanilla and a quick whizz of salt. Definitely tastes good. My perfect tea combo is using 3 cups water.
Combine the ingredients in the blender and blitz until very well combined. Pour through a sieve into a jug or other container for the milk to refine. Store in the fridge and enjoy in tea, coffee, over cereal, in smoothies, in cooking – you name it!
