Raw Hemp Milk photo by Sarah ElmoreIf you are lactose intolerant or just don't believe cow's milk is healthy, it's great to know there are many dairy-free alternatives like nut milk. One of the best is made from hemp seeds. Full of protein, iron, zinc and other minerals, hemp milk has the added advantage of not needing to be strained like other nut milks. When you drink hemp milk, you can rest assured that you are feeding your body one of the most complete foods on the planet.

Ingredients (serves 2-3)

  • 1 cup shelled hemp seeds

  • 3-4 cups water

  • 2 Tbsp agave nectar

Hemp milk does not need to be strained through a nut-milk bag. Simply blend well, and store in a tightly closed jar in the refrigerator.

Eco Tip

Lower your thermostat temperature in winter and raise it in summer. In winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees or less during the day (and wear a sweater) and 55 degrees or less at night (and add an extra blanket). Wear less or use a fan instead of air-conditioning on all but the hottest summer days. When you must use air-conditioning, set your thermostat to 78 degrees or more.  More tips...
