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
You can use it anywhere you would dairy milk, such as over cereal, in oatmeal or smoothies.
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.
Thank you for finding a milk that can aid those who would love to try vegan dishes but have nut allergies. Most recipes use nuts in some form or fashion, making it difficult for those who are considering becoming a vegan.
