You’ll be surprised at how simple it is to make this Chocolate Hemp Milk. Made with only 4 ingredients, this dairy-free deliciousness is creamy, protein-rich, and full of anti-inflammatory fats.

I don’t drink regular cow’s milk, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have it in other ways! 😉 If you’re dairy-free as well, then you’ll love how not only delicious this Chocolate Hemp Milk is, but how freaking EASY it is to whip up.


This Chocolate Hemp Milk requires just 4 ingredients:


Hemp Seeds
Cacao Powder
Maple Syrup (or honey)


It’s not only a great alternative to classic chocolate milk that you’d get at the store (which usually contain copious amounts of sugar and often added flavour) but it’s a great source of plant-based protein and healthy fats, thanks to my favourite ingredient: hemp seeds.


Why I Love Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds are an all-around excellent whole food. They contain omega-3 fatty acids which are essential for healthy brain, skin and joints, and combating inflammation. They’re also a great seed for providing a boost of protein to almost any meal.

I regularly add a large spoonful to my smoothies and they’re the star in today’s recipe because they blend up so easily.

Unlike other nut milks that require soaking and straining, hemp seeds are soft, don’t require soaking, and generally don’t require any straining depending on your blender. In my opinion, they’re an absolute pantry staple.
