Beet Hemp Milk
Hi friends! It’s been a busy week last few weeks since my last post with wrapping up this quarter. I’ve been enjoying this yummy Beet Hemp Milk lately and am excited for you to try it! Rich in nutrients – protein, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, plus it’s super easy and takes just minutes to blend up.
I love making dairy-free milks. Most nut milks require a nut milk bag to wring out the pulp though, which not everyone has or wants to take the time to do. Hempseeds though are amazing because they are so creamy – they can go straight from the blender to the jar, no bag required.
Hempseeds are also a powerhouse in terms of nutrition. Less than a quarter cup is packed with protein, healthy fats, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc, plus a little fiber! I feel like God always packs in so much goodness to the tiniest little plant seeds. And those seeds are given an extra boost in this recipe from all of the vitamins and minerals like potassium, fiber, antioxidants, and detox properties of the beautiful purple beet!
The flavor and color may be the best part though. Such a pretty pastel pink with a flavor reminiscent of that store-bought strawberry milk, but so much beyond that. A subtle sweetness and slightly earthy undertone. Enjoy this super fun, beautiful and easy twist on the much-loved nut milk!
Tips for making without measurements:
- Play around with the ratios of beet and hemp seeds to water. Stream in water as you blend until you reach desired consistency. The less water used with result in more of a beet hemp cream rather than a beet hemp milk, which is delicious served almost as a whipped cream on desserts, porridge, or soups.
- If you’re unsure about the whole beet thing, start with half the amount and taste. Blend in little by little until you reach the perfect beet flavor for you!
- 1 -2 medium purple beets, peeled and chunked
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup hemp seeds
- 1-2 dates, pitted
- Water, as needed
- Celtic sea salt
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth, adding water as needed to desired thickness.
Taste. Do you want it sweeter? Is the consistency how you like it? Blend in another date and additional water if you want it thinner.
Pour in a jar and chill if desired, drink as, or use as part of another recipe such as pouring over porridge.
The hempseeds can be substituted with raw cashews (or any other nut or seed) if desired. However, the cashews will allow for a creamy milk without the need for a nut milk bag. Soak the cashews for about 2 hours prior to blending to ensure a creamy milk.
*For those that don't know, my recipes are made as whole and nutrient-dense as possible, but still incredibly satisfying. I share my recipes without measurements and hope they equip you to not feel confined to a recipe, but rather confident in your kitchen to be able to create something unique, nourishing, and delicious all on your own. So take this recipe as inspiration and enjoy! Head on over to my IG @noelle.parton and tag me if you try this out, or contact me if you have questions or comments.
May you walk into the abundance God has for you,
