i bought a huge bag of raw organic hemp seeds a while back — i read a lot about people making hemp seed milk from it. and the major appeal of hemp seeds: you don’t have to pre-soak them before you make milk!
this “lazy factor” was a huge draw for me.
unfortunately, when i made my first batch – i really didn’t like the taste. it had this nutty, green, bitter flavor to the milkiness…something very unappealing to my palette. so i had this huge bag sitting in my pantry for a while.
this morning, i thought i’d try my hand at making my cacao latte with hemp seed milk instead of cashew nut milk (if there’s such a thing as cashew toxicity…i think i might have it! i OD on that stuff!)
i was SO pleasantly surprised to find that it was DELICIOUS!! the cacao powder masked the weird flavor of the hemp seed, and if anything, the greeny/bitter flavor added more depth to the chocolate flavor! :)
