There's a new contender in the nondairy milk world, and it looks to be a winner.
First there was soy and rice milks. Then almond, even hazelnut.
Now there is hemp seed milk.
Living Harvest's Hempmilk is rich, thick and creamy in a way that other milk alternatives only wish they could be. While it still never will be confused for the real thing, it's a great option for those who don't want or can't have cow's milk. Hempmilk is fine to drink on its own but is splendid in smoothies and over cereal. Sweetened with a bit of rice syrup, vanilla-flavored Hempmilk tastes naturally sweet with no lingering aftertaste. It also has 3 grams of fat and 4 grams of protein and is jammed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. And one cup has almost half your daily calcium.
Hempmilk also is available in chocolate and original flavors. Living Harvest's Hempmilk is available at natural foods stores nationwide and for $4.13 for a 32-ounce container online at http://www.livingharvest.com
