Vanilla Hemp Milk
Liven up the flavor of hemp milk with this recipe! Hemp milk makes a great alternative milk - it contains all essential amino acids making it comparable to animal protein. One glass of this milk contains 6.6 grams of protein, similar to cow's milk. Want more protein? Add a few more hemp seeds and customize your milk - an easy way of making a high protein milk.
What's even better about hemp seeds is their essential omega-3 fatty acid content which has anti-inflammatory properties. Not to mention, all the vitamin & minerals stored in these seeds.
