If you are looking for an alternative way to make milk at home, this recipe for hemp seed milk is worth a shot. From Julia at the Free People blog, the only ingredients are raw shelled hemp seeds and filtered water. If you would like to add sweetener, the blogger suggests maple syrup of a sweetener of your choice.

If you want a break from the more often seen almond, soy or even coconut, this homemade hemp seed milk will be particularly refreshing. Ideal for those with allergies and a restricted diet, the milk alternative is strained using a cheesecloth.

Hemp seeds are not just loaded with protein, but magnesium, vitamin E and zinc. These energy-boosting nutrients are also beneficial for the hair, immune system and skin.
