Hemp seed milk

making hemp milk

Hemp seed milk is a delicious dairy-free, nut-free, plant-based milk. It’s light and nutty in flavour, and only requires two main ingredients, hemp seeds and water!

I like to add some maple syrup and a little vanilla extract to sweeten it up, but that’s up to you…

Organic Shelled Hemp Seed

Ingredients

80 g shelled hemp seeds or 125g of whole hemp seeds

1litre of water

1 pinch sea salt

1 tbsp of maple syrup ( or sweeter of your choice)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

David and Tilly in the garden at Dorset Hemp HQ

I’ve always been intolerant to dairy, so I love that we can grow hemp right here in Dorset to provide us with a plant based alternative that is super nutritious and tastes great..

Try sweetening it with some yummy local honey or add 10g of cacao powder to make chocolate milk.

Don’t forget your five a day… you could add 25g of berry’s, maybe a banana or avocado to thicken it up like a smoothie?

The options are endless and it’s great fun experimenting to find your favorite flavour.

CBD Infused Hemp Protein Brownies

CBD Infused hemp protein brownies

These wheat and diary free Hemp protein brownies are a real treat..

INGREDIENTS

180 g dairy free dark chocolate 70% cocoa

100 g coconut oil

240 mg of CBD, we used half a 10 ml bottle of Refined 5% , approximately 96 drops (optional)

100 g ground almonds

75 g of organic hemp protein powder

A pinch of salt 

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 large eggs

150 g soft light brown sugar

1-2 teaspoon vanilla extract

75 g walnuts, roughly chopped

brownie ingredients mixed in a bowl

1. Preheat the oven to 130-140°C not to high, so not to evaporate off all the CBD. Line a tin about 20 x 30 cm with baking parchment.

2. Bring a pan of water to the boil then switch off the heat.  Break up the chocolate into small pieces and put into a heatproof glass bowl with the coconut oil and set on top of the pan of hot water, melt, combine the mixture, set aside to cool, then add your CBD oil and mix.

3. Meanwhile sift together the ground almonds, protein powder, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl and set aside.

4. Whisk the eggs and sugar together with the vanilla extract until well blended and frothy,# a minute or two with an electric whisk will do.

5. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in the egg and sugar mix, followed by the molten chocolate. Starting slowly, mix the whole lot together with a wooden spoon until it’s combined in a thick batter. Chop and Stir in the walnuts.

6. Scrape the mixture into the prepared tin, spread it out with a spatula and bake for roughly 25 minutes, or until the top looks firm and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out fairly clean.

7. Let the brownie cool in the tin completely, we put them in the fridge overnight, and they’ll get a bit fudgier and a bit firmer.

8. cut in to 12 portions then serve, chill out and enjoy your wonderful creation

This recipe makes 12 Hemp protein brownies each infused with roughly 20 mg of CBD, add more or less CBD oil to suit your needs, chill out and enjoy…

Sopley Festival

Our first event of 2019 was Sopley Festival situated in the grounds of Moorlands College, we had such a great day. The week leading up to the festival I was busy building our new stand and sign, whilst my wife Sarah was working hard developing some tasty hemp seed based treats that went down a storm.

It was great to see some familiar faces and also meet lots of lovely new people who wanted to learn more about the benefits that hemp and CBD Oil have to offer.

From classic cars and steam engine displays to dog shows and beautiful arts and crafts Sopley Festival had it all!

Thank you for having us and we look forward to doing it all again next year!

Yummy Smoothie!

I have to say I love my smoothies! They are a great way to get your five a day, and guess what? It’s really easy to add your CBD oil too, all you need to do is add a fatty element like avocado for the CBD oil to bind to and you’re away. I use 2 tablespoons of shelled hemp seed, spinach, avocado, apple, blueberries, strawberries and some water, try adding 5-20 mg of your CBD oil, blitz then enjoy.

Head to the shop page to buy your CBD Oil now and don’t forget tag Dorset Hemp with your favorite recipes!
