Hemp milk is incredibly fast and easy to make, with no soaking required. Throw everything into a blender and blend until creamy, that’s it! Perfect for those with nut or soy allergies.
Hemp milk is surprisingly creamy and smooth, and making it at home is a breeze. Hemp milk lattes are my personal favorite, and I also love it in oatmeal.
You only need a few ingredients to make this milk, and no soaking is needed, so it comes together in less than 5 minutes!
- Hulled hemp seeds – Also called hemp hearts, you can find these at nearly any grocery store in the health food section.
- Pure maple syrup – Hemp seeds have quite a strong, nutty flavor, so I use a little extra sweetener. But please omit if you plan on using it in savory dishes.
- Vanilla – Again, omit if you are using it in savory dishes, but vanilla hemp milk is wonderful.
How to make hemp milk
It’s super simple. Add 3/4 cup hemp seeds to a blender, along with 4 cups of water, maple syrup to taste (3-4 tbs) and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
Blend until creamy and smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Pour into containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It can also be frozen if needed.
Can I use a regular blender?
Making hemp milk works best in a high powered blender, but it will work okay using a regular blender. It probably won’t get as smooth and rich, and I would strain it though a nut bag to make sure there isn’t so much sediment.
Where to use hemp milk
It’s also a great alternative for any vegan recipe that calls for almond or soy milk. Try using it in any of these recipes:

How to Make Hemp Milk
- 3/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
- 4 cups water
- 3-4 tablespoons pure maple syrup, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- To a high powered blender, add the hemp seeds, water and optional ingredients and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until creamy and white.
- Pour into containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It can also be frozen.
- For storage, I like these larger glass milk jugs, or sometimes I use these little glass containers as well.
- Hemp milk has quite a strong flavor, which is why I use a little extra maple syrup. But you don’t have to use any sweetener or vanilla, and you shouldn’t if you plan to use it in savory recipes.
- It’s not necessary to strain it, but if you want a thinner, smoother milk you can strain it through a nut milk bag.
