3 ICED COFFEE RECIPES WITH HEMP MILK (+ HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE HEMP MILK)

Hemp milk is rapidly earning a reputation of a healthier, more nutrient-rich plant-based alternative to dairy milk. This is because hemp seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients offering numerous health benefits. They’re a great source of high-quality protein, and contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, along with lots of vitamins and minerals.

The CBD in hemp seeds may help boost the immune system, protect the heart, improve neurological conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and improve your skin.

Read on to learn how to make creamy hemp milk at home, plus 3 simple and delicious iced coffee recipes using hemp milk.

HOW TO MAKE HEMP MILK AT HOME

You can make smooth and creamy hemp milk at home in as little as 5 minutes!

All you need is a bag of quality raw hemp seeds, a good blender, and a mesh strainer. Hemp milk will not produce good froth due to its lower fat content, but this makes it perfect for iced coffee and cold brew.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • ¼ - ½ cup organic hemp seeds (shelled)
  • 1 – ½ cup of filtered water (less water makes creamier milk)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 pitted date (optional)
  • 1 tsp. hemp protein powder (optional)
  • Vanilla bean or vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions:

In a high-speed blender, combine the water and hemp seeds, and the rest of the optional ingredients. Blend on high for at least 30 seconds or until the liquid turns creamy white in color. Strain the milk through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag into a container. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days. Shake well before use.

Sträva tip: Fortify the health benefits of the hemp milk by adding a few drops of pure CBD oil.

CARAMEL FRAPPUCCINO WITH HEMP MILK

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 1 ½ cup freshly brewed Sträva Signature Roast (chilled)
  • ½ cup hemp milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Sweetener (optional)
  • ¼ cup caramel sauce or caramel syrup
  • Whipped cream for garnish

Instructions:

In a high-speed blender, add all the ingredients (except the whipped cream) and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top off with whipped cream. Drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve immediately.

Sträva tip: To make the Frappuccino more nutritious, add a teaspoon of hemp seeds to the blender or sprinkle them on top of the whipped cream.

HEMP MILK ICED VANILLA MACCHIATO

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Fill the glasses halfway with hemp milk and add the vanilla, sweetener (optional), and ice, making sure to leave enough room for the espresso. Slowly pour the espresso to create a separate layer. You should get a white layer of milk at the bottom of the glass and a brown layer of coffee on top. Serve immediately.

Sträva tip: We strongly recommend using freshly brewed espresso while it’s still hot. The espresso will cool once you pour it in the glass and create beautiful layers.
