I haven’t bought milk from the store for over a year now. I love it so much I’m never going back. I love the simplicity, that I can make a fresh batch daily or on the fly with no hassle. On top of it being so quick to prepare, it’s also tasty, and nutritious.
For any hemp milk newbies, hemp milk is completely legal and does not contain THC.
Hemp seeds in general, are a must-have in my kitchen. They are great for topping, making creamy smoothies, and an easy milk replacement of course. Hemp milk is a way better choice than cows milk because it’s cholesterol free, gluten free, soy free, hormone free, chemical, and mucus free. Hemp milk is known to contain the highest amount of protein. The protein contained is easier to digest than cows milk and meat. It contains all 10 essential amino acids and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Including hemp seeds/milk into your daily diet is beneficial for your brain health.
Other health benefits include:
– Boosts your immune system
– Increased mental clarity
– Clearer skin, healthy hair, and nails
– Improves heart health
– Improves cognition
