Thanks for the tip about hemp milk. I am very intolerent to milk products of any kind. It is easier to do without. So this would be great. I have just started using hemp hearts in my smoothies.

DH and I LOVE hemp milk, but it is pricey. Our local health food store carries a few different brands, and most come in natural(plain), vanilla or chocolate flavors. Last time we splurged, we got vanilla to eat on our cereal, and I thought it was a little too sweet. I think I would have enjoyed the natural better.

I guess I'm just used to the coconut milk we use; it isn't too seet. We buy the powder from Wilderness Family Naturals and mix it with water to make milk. SOmetimes we use it thicker to make cream, or ice cream; and DH has made several dressings and sauces with it. It's really good for you, too. My only complaint is that it is definitely coconut flavored. It's great on granola and oatmeal, but sometimes I get a little tired of it. DH never has, so I guess it's just me. Here's a link for the cocnut milk powder:

Also - I saved a message board where someone gave a recipe to make hemp milk. Here is the link:

We are fortunate to get hemp seeds at our health food store, but I have to admit that we still haven't tried making our own hemp milk. Thanks for the reminder!

Can hemp milk do a body good like regular milk can? I had never heard of hemp milk until reading a small blurb about it in one of my fitness magazines. If you are lactose intolerant, chances are you are always looking out for milk substitutes. There are some good ones out there such as soy milk, rice milk, and almond milk.

Hemp milk is very similar to cow’s milk in several ways in terms of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. However, unlike cow’s milk, it contains no cholesterol and has less saturated fat. It also contains a lot less calcium than cow’s milk so some manufacturers will add calcium carbonate.

The big benefit of hemp milk is that it contains no casein or lactose which is great for people who are lactose intolerant. It is a great alternative for someone who likes to drink protein shakes or loves milk in general. Hemp milk is also a source of complete protein and vitamin E.

I have yet to see hemp milk in any of the markets I frequent so I don’t know if any of the brands add sugar or sweetener like some of the soy milk products out there. Have you tried hemp milk before? Does it sound like a good alternative?
