How to Make Hemp Milk

hemp milk recipe

A super easy, homemade 2-ingredient hemp milk that’s creamy and refreshing!

The first time I tried hemp milk was at the Sydney vegan markets, and it’s still one of the most refreshing drinks I’ve ever had!

I love taking hemp milk out on hikes or enjoying as a post-workout refreshment as it’s such a great way to hydrate and cool down.

Hemp is rich in nutrients like vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc, as well as essential fatty acids, and is a great source of protein.

You can also sweeten up this milk by adding natural sweeteners like stevia, maple syrup, dates, honey, cacao powder or cinnamon.

Homemade Hemp Milk

When making hemp milk, you don’t need to soak the seeds before blending them like you do to make nut milk. So it’s so much quicker!



  • 1 whole date, pitted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup berries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

To make:

  1. In a high-speed blender, add hemp seeds, water, salt, and any additional add-ins.
  2. Blend until creamy and smooth; about one minute.
  3. Strain the mixture using a fine mesh strainer, cheesecloth, clean T-shirt, thin towel or nut milk bag over a large mixing bowl.
  4. Once strained, pour the milk directly into an airtight glass jar for storage.
  5. The milk will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy cold and shake well before use.
