got hemp milk?

"Seeds of the plant cannabis sativa, hemp seed, contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source has the essential amino acids in such an easily digestible form, nor has the essential fatty acids in as perfect a ratio to meet human nutritional needs." -Lynn Osburn

I know I'm not supposed to be playing with my food.. because I need to crack down on school work - but I don't think I'll really be able to change my ways for this last month of class. I felt like a sweet snack in the middle of my work - but I don't have much time to make a mess.. that and I don't have very many groceries right now. The best combination of circumstances to be creative.

This is sweet drink is really simple:

1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
1 cup water
1 frozen banana, chopped
(optional: vanilla, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg...etc.)

First blend the hemp seeds with the water (add a 1/4 cup at a time) to make a hemp cream, then add the banana and any other ingredients that would satisfy you. The frozen banana was all I thought it needed.

Ok! I can go back to work now..


  1. Es que un bigote de leche? Eso es hermoso!

  2. This sounds yummy! Try adding a scoop of raw organic cacao powder to turn it into chocolate-banana hemp milk :)

    Am enjoying your blog and your creative recipes!

  3. You have the prettiest eyes! And that looks yummy... I like Sheri's thought of adding cacao... Mmmm!
