Hemp Milk for Newbies
Just around the corner from our office is a wonderful little café called Kavalleriet (the Cavalry). This is where we go as soon as we want some peace and quiet, their Bircher muesli (the original overnight oats) with raspberry compote and roasted almonds is divine, especially alongside a cup of tea made from fresh ginger and mint.
And over our Bircher muesli, we often pour the Cavalry’s homemade hemp milk. No only is it delish but hemp is also environmentally friendly. Hemp is both durable and fast-growing and can grow well on nutrient-poor soils and even in colder climates (which often have better access to water).
With a titch of cinnamon and cardamom, this milk becomes very smooth and kind. Here’s the recipe:
Homemade Hemp Milk
(just over 2 cups)
¼ cup pumpkin seeds (soaked overnight)
¼ cup of hemp seed
2 cups of water
0.5-1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 teaspoons of cardamom
Mix in blender!
